Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio - Italian Artist From Art History

Art History - Historical Artists > B > Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio


Historical Artist - Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio (1467 - 1516)

Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio trained under Leonardo in Milan. He painted mostly religious works and portraits. Boltraffio and Bernardino Luini are the strongest artistic personalities to emerge from Leonardo's studio. According to Giorgio Vasari, he was of an aristocratic family and was born in Milan. His portraits, often in profile, and his half-length renderings of the Madonna and Child are Leonardesque in conception, though the clean hard edges of his outlines lack Leonardo's sfumato.
