Lorenzo Lotto Portraits

National Gallery, London

5 Nov 2018 - 10 Feb 2019

Co-organised with the Museo del Prado, where it was staged this summer, this is one of the first large-scale exhibitions dedicated to the cinquecento painter, who was born and trained in Venice but worked throughout Italy. Lotto’s two subjects were religious scenes and portraits – this survey focuses on the latter, with close to 40 paintings as well as works on paper, and a series of objects relating to those depicted in the portraits. Find out more about the Lorenzo Lotto exhibition from the National Gallery’s website.
