Lodovico Mazzolino: 'The Nativity'

Explore the paintings

This is an early painting in which the influence of Lombard artists (including those in the circle of Leonardo) is combined with that of Ferrarese 15th-century painters such as Ercole de' Roberti.

It is somewhat unusual for the adoring shepherds to be represented by only one prominent figure, but see also Titian's 'Holy Family and a Shepherd'.
