Bernardino Luini (c. 1480/82 – June 1532) was a North Italian painter from Leonardo’s circle during the High Renaissance. Both Luini and Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio were said to have worked behind Leonardo directly; he was described as having taken “as much from Leonardo as his native roots enabled him to comprehend”. Consequently, many of his works were ascribed to Leonardo. He was known especially for his graceful female figures following elongated eyes, called Luinesque by Vladimir Nabokov.
