In the Madonna and Child, 1508, the young Lorenzo Lotto is influenced by Dürer, who when in Venice in 1506 had painted sacred paintings of great chromatic intensity and asymmetrical composition; Lotto's wild St. Onophrius is based on the man with the long beard in Dürer's Christ among the Doctors (now in the Thyssen Collection, Madrid).
