Exclusive UK screening of Lorenzo Lotto biopic

Lorenzo Lotto is one of the most distinctive and inventive painters of his time. Born and trained in Venice, he lived and worked in a variety of locations in Italy, securing commissions in Treviso and Bergamo and across central Italy.  

To coincide with the exhibition Lorenzo Lotto Portraits, we’re screening the recent biographical documentary. Tracing Lotto’s itinerant life, this programme by art historian and co-curator of 'Lorenzo Lotto Portraits' Enrico Maria del Pozzolo, follows the artist’s career from his early works in Treviso and the Veneto, his heyday in Bergamo, through his mature years in Venice and the region of the Marches, to his final years spent as a lay member in the Holy House at Loreto.

The screening will be introduced by Alexander Roestel, our Simon Sainsbury Curatorial Fellow, and Enrico Maria dal Pozzolo, Associate Professor in the History of Art at the University of Verona and exhibition co-curator.
