Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio (1467-1516)

Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio, sometimes spelled Beltraffio, was an Italian painter of the Milanese school during the Early Renaissance. He was born in Milan in 1467, and died in the same city in 1516.

Having studied under Da Vinci, Boltraffio is known for a small number of portraits and religious paintings, among which we mention: "Portrait of Gerolamo Casio" (1495, Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan), the beautiful "Virgin and Child" (1499, hosted at the National Gallery in London), the Leonardesque "Virgin and Child with a Flower Vase" (1485-1490) Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Milan), and "Virgin and Child with Saints John the Baptist and Sebastian" (1500, Musee du Louvre, Paris).
