Dual Portrait

Giovanni Agostino da Lodi

This painting with its signature in gold letters provides us with a starting point for reconstructing Giovanni Agostino da Lodi’s career. We can detect the obvious influence of Bramante and of Bramantino in the two figures of differing age, posture and pyschological attitude. The dual portrait was a popular genre chiefly in Venice, where the painter is known to have been working in 1492. The inscription above appears to suggest that the sitters were master and pupil.
