The New Student's Reference Work/Luini, Bernardino
Luini (lo͞o-ē′nē̇) or Lovino, Bernardino, a painter of the Lombard school, was born in 1490 at Luino. His skill was developed in the school of Leonardo da Vinci; indeed, many of his works were at one time attributed to that great artist. Luini's principal charm is poetic grace and beauty; he is one of the great painters whose “supremacy” Ruskin affirmed. He died about 1535.
