Lorenzo Lotto Portraits



ISBN: 9788484803720 Category:


Discover the expressive sensitivity and immediacy of Lorenzo Lotto’s portraits in this sumptuous book, which accompanies the major exhibition at the Prado

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 catalogue provides extraordinary insight into the artist’s individualistic style and the people he portrayed.
