Map of Piateda for Another small work by Raphael, a Risen Christ, shows in the accurate rendering of the body’s musculature, the movement in the slightly turned stance and details such as a whisper of five o’clock shadow the debt the young artist owed to Leonardo. Alessandro Bonvicino was one of a trio of artists at the head of the Brescian Renaissance (the others were Moretto and Romanino), who brought techniques of colour and humanistic portraiture learned from Titian and other Venetian masters back to Brescia, blending them with local, Lombard styles. Bonvicino’s Salome (c.1537) is an insightful portrait of Renaissance courtesan Tullia d’Aragona, whose mother was known for sexual impropriety. In an attempt to recover her own and her family’s reputations, Tullia took to writing poetry, and the artist portrays her as a melancholy victim as Salome was of her mother’s manipulations. The collection also features a fine Adoration of the Shepherds (1530) by Lorenzo Lotto, a Venetian who lived in Bergamo and had great influence on the Brescian school. The tenderness of the Christ-child reaching out to a sheep, the bold colouring and the blue sky are all signs of a Venetian style, and here, unusually, the Virgin is shown kneeling in the manger. The artist has shown his two patrons, members of the wealthy Bagnoni family, as shepherds, incongruously dressed in the elegant clothes of noblemen.
