Bramantino

Bramantino (brämäntē´nō), c.1465–c.1535, Lombard painter and architect. His real name was Bartolomeo Suardi. He took the name of his master Bramante, whose style he followed closely. He became court painter to Francesco Maria Sforza. His works are noted for their fine architectural background. Examples of his art are the Madonna and Angels and St. Martin (both: Brera, Milan); and several paintings in the Metropolitan Museum and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. As an architect, Bramantino designed the Trivulzio Chapel (San Nazzaro, Milan). He also wrote a treatise on perspective, parts of which have been preserved.
