Suardi, Bartolomeo, called Bramantino (c.1465–1530). Milanese painter and architect. He was influenced by Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci, and worked in Rome (1508–13) where he studied antiquities. He later made a study of old buildings in Milan. While his paintings often feature architectural backgrounds, his only surviving building is the octagonal Trivulzio mortuary-chapel, San Nazaro Maggiore, Milan (begun 1512), an early and remarkable example of refined Classicism.
