Lorenzo Lotto and the Venetian painting tradition

Monday 26 November, 1–1.45pm

Sainsbury Wing Theatre

Peter Humfrey

Admission free, donations welcome

Although proud to call himself a Venetian painter, Lotto had a successful career outside the city. Why was this and to what extent can his art be described as Venetian?

Peter Humfrey, Emeritus Professor at the University of Edinburgh, will explore the fascinating relationship between Lotto and the artistic traditions of his native Venice.

Lunchtime talks

Focus in on one painting with our talks in the Gallery, or explore wider themes in the collection at our in-depth theatre talks.
