The Prado Museum presents the first major monographic exhibition of Lorenzo Lotto’s portraits. Lotto was one of the most unique artists of the Italian Cinquecento.
Lorenzo Lotto established himself as the first modern portrait artist thanks to the intense dimension of his portraits, and the variety and sophistication of the artistic resources he used in them. The exhibition, organised in collaboration with the National Gallery in London, displays 38 paintings, ten drawings, a vignette, as well as some fifteen sculptures and objects similar to those depicted in his canvases.The exhibition delves into both well-known aspects of his portrait painting (variety of type, psychological depth, symbolic complexity, etc.) as well as newer ones, for example the transfer of expressive solutions between portraits and religious painting, the importance of the objects featured in the paintings as witness to the material culture of the period, and the underlying creative process.
