Madonna And Child With St. John The Baptist And The Lamb

Luini, Bernardino (Italian, 1481-1532)


Like many of Bernardino Luini's works, this one is indebted to Leonardo da Vinci. The composition is a reprise of Leonardo's Virgin of the Rocks. The influence of the famous master is also evident in the features of the gently smiling Madonna, the view of a distant landscape, and in the adoption of a dark, smoky palette.
