San Francis of Assisi

Bernardino Lanino

This small, melancholy and sentimental St. Francis, its colours transparent and subtle, perfectly captures Lanino’s subscription to the style of Gaudenzio Ferrari. Lanino trained in Vercelli where he rubbed shoulders with Ferrari and Gerolamo Giovenone, the leading players in the renewal of painting in the eastern Piedmont. He married Giovenone’s daughter in 1540 and became the most successful painter in the Vercelli area after Ferrari left for Milan in 1537.
