The Assumption of the Virgin Mary

Town Museum "Ala Ponzone"

Room of the 16th Century

Bernardino Campi (1521-1591)



This artwork comes from St. Domenico Church in Cremona demolished between 1869 and 1871. Bernardino Campi, in 1568, made this altarpiece for the altar of the family Golferami, representing the assumption of the Virgin Mary. The painting was immediately considered extremely interesting and several copies were made. This model was then used by some other painters belonging to the same workshop of the master. In fact, it totally respects the parameters of a composed kind of devotion, typical of that time. It represents the most artificial phase of Bernardino’s style in which the colors start to become brighter and the surfaces more gentle.
