The Virgin with the Christ Child and Saint John the Baptist – Inspiration after Luini by Elisabeta Hermann

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The Virgin with the Christ Child and Saint John the Baptist – Inspiration after Luini by 

Bernardino Luini (about 1480 – 1532), was the most famous Milanese painter of the early 16th century.

Some time ago I came across one of his works, in a very old book.

This work of his, “The Virgin with the Christ Child and Saint John the Baptist”, was the source of inspiration for my painting.

Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 9×12in.


Here is the picture of Luini’s beautiful work which inspired me:
