Jesus Preaching to the Crowds

Bernardino Campi

This fresco is part of a cycle from the Oratorio della Maddalena in the Monastery of San Colombano al Lambro near Lodi. It was partially detached and trasferred onto canvas in 1846, when the monastery was destroyed. The decoration of the oratory was commissioned from Bernardino in 1577 by the prior of the Certosa di Pavia on which San Colombano depended, but it was only begun in 1579 and completed in 1580. The artist used assistants to ensure that he could rapidly complete the demanding task.
