Jacopo Bellini’s major works are Madonna and Child, 1448 (Milan: Pinacoteca di Brera); Sketchbooks, c. 1450 (London: British Museum/Paris: Musée du Louvre); Madonna and Child Blessing, 1455 (Venice: Gallerie dell’Accademia); Saint Anthony Abbot and Saint Bernardino of Siena, 1459–60 (Washington, DC: National Gallery of Art).
