 Bernardino Butinone



Butinone Bernardino

(b c. 1450; d Treviglio, before 6 Nov 1510).

 Italian painter, lombard school. He was the son of the painter Jacopo Butinone of Treviglio. His training was probably based on the study of such painters as Andrea Mantegna, Cosimo Tura, Francesco del Cossa, from whom he learnt an expressive and refined style, and Vincenzo Foppa. The earliest works, probably from the early 1480s, include a panel of the Crucifixion (Rome, G.N.A. Mod.), in which the incisive drawing and dramatic atmosphere suggest Mantegna’s influence. Also from this period is the Virgin and Child with Angels (Milan, Gallarati-Scotti priv. col.), inspired by Tura and Cossa. Butinone is documented in Milan from 1484, probably the year he painted the triptych of the Virgin and Child with SS Leonard and Bernardino of Siena (Milan, Brera), which reflects the realistic style of Foppa.
