Fourth Dialogue at the Brera Art Gallery

From March 30 to June 11, 2017, the fourth appointment with Dialogues at the Pinacoteca di Brera: this time it is dedicated to the works of Lorenzo Lotto.

From March 30 to June 11, 2017, another appointment with Dialogues between masterpieces of art history will be held at the Pinacoteca di Brera.
After Raphael and Perugino, Mantegna, and Caravaggio, it is the turn of Lorenzo Lotto.

Paintings from the collection of the Pinacoteca di Brera, including the Portrait of Laura da Pola, Portrait of a Gentleman with Gloves (Liberale da Pinedel) and Portrait of a Man, will be compared with another work by Lotto from theAcademy of Venice: the Portrait of a Young Gentleman (Cristoforo Rovero).

The initiative, the brainchild of the new director of the Pinacoteca di Brera and Biblioteca Braidense, James Bradburne, is now in its fourth installment; the latter is curated by Francesco Frangi and Maria Cristina Passoni. The curator states in her essay that these works in dialogue possess the effectiveness of intimate biographies, and the viewer feels the desire to know the identity and historical coordinates of the characters depicted in them.

A photography contest is also addressed to the public: just take a photo of a loved one and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #Lottoritratto by May 31; each week the Brera Art Gallery’s Instagram page will share one, and at the end of the contest three will be chosen, which will be posted on the website and on panels at the entrance to the Brera Art Gallery until June 11. The first runner-up will receive two invitations to the opening preview concert of the next Dialogue scheduled for June 2017.
