Lorenzo Lotto Portraits

(Monday) (Sunday)

Discover the expressive sensitivity and immediacy of Lorenzo Lotto’s portraits in the first UK exhibition of its kind

Celebrated as one of the greatest portraitists of the Italian Renaissance, Lorenzo Lotto uniquely portrayed a cross section of middle-class sitters, among them clerics, merchants, and humanists.

Lotto depicted men, women, and children in compositions rich in symbolism and imbued with great psychological depth. The prominent addition of objects which hinted at the social status, interests, and aspirations of his subjects added meaning to each work.

With the inclusion of documents that have survived from Lotto’s own account books, this exhibition provides extraordinary insight into the artist’s individualistic style and the people he portrayed.

Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid.
