Bernardino de' Conti
Bernardino de' Conti, an Italian painter mainly of portraits and to a lesser extent, religious compositions.
He is said to have been born at Pavia in the latter part of the 15th century as the son of an obscure painter. He died in 1525. He was a follower of Zenale, but little is known of his life or works. The following paintings, however, are preserved:
- Bergamo. Lochis-Carrara Gallery. Madonna and Child (signed). 1501.
- Berlin. Gallery. Profile of a Prelate. 1499.
