Hailed as the greatest Venetian painter after Titian, Lorenzo Lotto (c. 1480-1556) is known for a delightfully idiosyncratic artistic vision that has had special appeal for twentieth-century sensibilities. This book―which discusses Lotto’s life and work―explores the way his formal and iconographic experiments set him apart from the mainstream culture of his time. The volume describes and reproduces paintings in most of the genres in which Lotto worked, including devotional paintings, altarpieces, portraits, and mythologies. These are arranged in chronological order from his beginnings as a pupil of Giovanni Bellini through the brilliant work of his maturity on which his reputation was based, to the end of his career in a religious community on the Adriatic coast. Focusing on his autograph paintings, the book presents such masterpieces as Saint Jerome in the Wilderness and Portrait of Andrea Odoni. The authors―David Alan Brown, Peter Humfrey, Mauro Lucco, and other eminent scholars―draw on a large number of original documents, including Lotto’s will, his letters to a confraternity in Bergamo, and his meticulously kept account books. They discuss not only Lotto’s biography and inspiration but also his mastery of allegory, his possible sympathy with the Protestant Reformation, the patrons of his altarpieces, and the so-called Lotto carpets.This beautiful book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, d.c., that will run from 2 November 1997 to 1 March 1998.Published in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington

As often happens in Art History, the catalogue of an exhibition devoted to a single artist, such as this is, becomes the most up-to-date monographic study of that artist. The various sections are written by top scholars in the field of Italian Renaissance art (Brown, Sheard) and specialists in Venetian painting (Humfrey, Lucco, Gentili) among others. The 51 pictures in the exhibition cover a wide range of Lotto's work and all are catalogued with full scholarly entries accompanied by good color reproductions. Those interested in oriental carpets will be pleased that there is included a section of the text and color details devoted to the carpets in Lotto's paintings written by Rosamond Mack, long overdue in studies of the painter. Chapters are on the Artist's Life & Work with a Chronology; The Figurative Sources; The Religious Crisis in Early Sixteenth-Century Italy; The Patrons' Role; The Stories, The Metaphors; The Portraits; The Frescoes; Lotto as a Carpet Connoisseur. The Text is followed by a Catalogue broken into The Early Works; Bergamo; The Later Works in Venice & The Marches. An extensive Bibliography completes the book. The exhibition was held at the Washington National Gallery and at the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo between 1997 and 1999. First rate for anyone interested in Venetian Renaissance painting and in Lorenzo Lotto's contributions to it.

The catalog for the 1998 Lotto exhibition at the National Gallery in Washington, this book is a good compendium of the artist's work with some impressive magnified details, even though many colored reproductions are somewhat dark and don't do justice to the skills of one of the best colorists of the Italian Renaissance.

The essays, written by authorities in the field (Peter Humphrey...) cover the entire output (religious paintings, portraits)and dwell on some interesting aspects of his paintings (the stories they tell, the metaphors they illustrate); an in-depth study of Lotto's relationship to oriental carpet making (he represented oriental carpets in six of his paintings) also makes for good reading and highlights a previously unknown aspect of his art.
