Bramante a Milano

Pinacoteca di Brera

Donato Bramante, born in the countryside of Urbino around 1444, is universally known as an innovator of Renaissance architecture, but he began as a painter instead. Five hundred years after his death, the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan dedicates an exhibition to Bramante, whose stay in Milan during the last two decades of the 15th century was of major influence to Lombard artists.

Bramante’s paintings on display are accompanied by the works of his teachers like Piero della Francesca, and by the protagonists of Renaissance painting in Lombardy like Vincenzo Foppa, Ambrogio Bergognone and Bramantino. The exhibition includes some 50 works coming from some of the most famous Italian and European museums, including the Uffizi in Florence and the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen.
