🖼
L’unica galleria di pittura barocca tra Piemonte e Lombardia conservata fino a noi è a Palazzo Borromeo sull’Isola Bella.
.
È la Galleria Berthier che tra le sue 130 opere, comprende anche dipinti di grandi nomi nella cerchia di Leonardo da Vinci, tra cui Bernardino de’ Conti, tra i maggiori esponenti della tradizione sforzesca.
🖌
Anche in questo ritratto d’uomo, la vista di tre quarti su fondo scuro, l’attenzione ai dettagli del costume del personaggio e la durezza plastica, quasi di derivazione nordica, ne fanno i tratti distintivi di questo grande autore.

🖼
The only baroque painting gallery between Piedmont and Lombardy preserved to this day is at Palazzo Borromeo on Isola Bella.
.
It is the Galleria Berthier, which houses 130 works including paintings by renowned artists in the circle of Leonardo da Vinci, including Bernardino de' Conti; one of the greatest exponents of the Sforza tradition.
🖌
Even in this portrait of a man, depicted in a three-quarter perspective on a dark background, the attention to detail of the character's costume and the hardness of the plastic, almost of Nordic derivation, are the hallmarks of this great artist.
