This sargophagus front is an excellent example of sculpture from
the Campione area. It
was made by a follower of Bonino da Campione, a prolific artist who greatly
influenced sculptors working in the Lombard town of Campione in the second half
of the fourteenth century. His
merit was to disseminate - with several variations - a style where traditional
local elements, evident in the solid construction of the figures, blended with
the elegant refinements imported into Milan by Tuscan sculptors.
