Subscribe today Lombard period By Bramante had left Urbino for unknown reasons and settled in the northern Italian province of Lombardy. Moreover, Milan was a large and wealthy metropolis, the capital of a state ruled by Ludovico Sforza , called Il Moro, and Renaissance architecture was a commodity to be imported. Thus the city represented an opportunity for a young and up-to-date architect like Bramante.

The first architectural work that can be definitely attributed to Bramante is a design: a print made in by a Milanese engraver, Bernardo Prevedari, from a Bramante drawing representing a ruined temple with human figures.

About the same time, Bramante was working on the church of Santa Maria presso San Satiro, the first structure definitely attributed to him. Along with a certain adherence to local taste, this church shows traces of the influence of Alberti, Mantegna, Brunelleschi, and the Urbino school. This last influence is particularly evident in its choir, which was painted in perspective to give an illusion of a much larger space.

Perhaps from the same period c. Similar experiments, perhaps also in the same years, seem to have been carried out by Bramante on the facades of buildings, such as Casa Fontana, later called Silvestri, in Milan. In Bramante, along with a number of other architects, was asked by Cardinal Ascanio Sforza, brother of Ludovico Sforza and bishop of Pavia , to draw up a new plan for the cathedral of Pavia. Bramante went many times to that city during this period, and it was probably under his direction that the crypt and the lower portion of the building were executed.

Bramante appears to have had close relations with Leonardo da Vinci. In Leonardo had visited Milan from Florence, and in both Bramante and Leonardo were occupied with stylistic and structural problems of the tiburio, or crossing tower, of the cathedral of Milan. From to a number of mutual exchanges can be documented. Bramante examined various solutions among them one of his own, a square plan , demonstrating a conception of architecture remarkably like that of Alberti.

Bramante by now enjoyed the favour of both Ludovico and Ascanio Sforza, as well as that of influential courtiers. His modest salary and the irregularity of payment, however, did not allow him to live luxuriously. He came in contact not only with artists but also with humanists and poets of the Sforza court, and he himself wrote verses.

Like Leonardo, he was involved in the staging of spectacles at the Sforza court, such as one on the occasion of a baptism in Architecture increasingly dominated his interests, but he did not give up painting. Of the many works attributed to him by various 16th-century writers, however, none seems to have been preserved.

The only extant easel picture that has ever been attributed to him is the Christ at the Column of the Abbey of Chiaravalle c. A fresco in a complex architectural setting c. The work was interrupted by the fall of Ludovico, and, though it was resumed in the 16th century, only one side of the building was executed. Bramante also may have planned the painted decoration of the interior, but the execution and the clarification of details, particularly on the exterior, were probably done by Lombard masters.

In he made a report on certain fortifications on the Swiss border for Ludovico. His last few years in Lombardy were marked by the restless activity that characterized the remainder of his career. He was probably responsible for the designs of the piazza of Vigevano carried out between and , partly transformed in the late 17th century , of the painted architectural decoration on the arcaded facades that marked its limits, and for the designs of other structures of the Vigevano complex, as well as the painted decoration which has disappeared for the interior of the castle of the same city.

His covered passageway ponticella for the Castello Sforzesco in Milan must also be from this period, and the facade of the church of Santa Maria Nascente ad Abbiategrasso near Milan dates from He was also influenced by his study of Lombard monuments dating from the late ancient and Carolingian periods, the memory of which was to be useful to him in Rome.
