An original and rebellious personality, the Renaissance painter Lorenzo Lotto (c. 1480-1556/57) has left a large number of sacred canvases, but also produced private portraits that did not respect the unwritten rules of his times. Lotto's nature led him to represent the subject's personality, rather than glorify her/him as other painters did.
.:. The Brera national gallery keeps in Milan four important portraits of Lotto, that of Laura da Pola (pictured) among them.
.:. In this exhibition, Lotto's Milanese works are accompanied by others from the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice. As in the case of Laura, some of these paintings portray important citizens from Treviso, the mainland town near Venice where Lotto dwelled for a while.
