Ambrogio Bergognone (1465-1524)

Ambrogio Bergognone was an Italian painter, member of the Milan school of art during the High Renaissance period. He was born approximately 1465 in the piedmontese town of Fossano, and died approximately 1524 in Milan.

Bergognone was commissioned by the benedictine Church of San Simpliciano (Milan) to paint a number of frescoes in the basilica, a project he finished in the last years of his life (cca. 1524). He also painted frescoes at the church and convent of Certosa di Pavia.

Although he was contemporary to great artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, Bergognone remained loyal to an Early Renaissance style of painting.

Among his other works, "The Madonna of the Veil" (at Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan), and "Virgin with Child and Two Angels" (at Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Milan).
