Andrea Odoni

This major monographic exhibition explores the work of Lorenzo Lotto and his growing reputation following the publication of Bernard Berenson's first monograph on Lotto in 1895. The exhibition focuses on Lotto as a portraitist, drawing on surviving account books documenting the identity of his sitters and the price of his work. Andrea Odoni- on loan from the Royal Collection - is one of Lotto's most celebrated portraits and an outstanding example of a very particular type of portrait: the portrait of a collector. The painting will be displayed alongside objects similar to those seen in the painting in order to show the sitter's antiquarian interests as well as the importance of those interests in defining his status.
