Description

Born in Venice, the painter sought work in other regions, accepting positions offered both by religious bodies and by exponents of the nascent Italian bourgeoisie. Only in the last century did critics recognize Lorenzo Lotto as an extraordinary innovator, particularly in the portrait genre. The Portrait of the Pinacoteca offers full evidence of this, depicting a young man distracted from reading a "Petrarchino", a small volume that contains the lyrics of Francesco Petrarca. Everything contributes to familiarizing us not only with the young man's behavior, but also with the psychological nuances that seem to pierce and wrinkle the epidermis of the face. This ability to grasp the sudden change of feelings by fixing them in indelible features remains a prerogative of the Venetian artist. The identity of the young man is unknown, just as there is no news of the work in the accounts that the artist wrote meticulously in a diary. Only the stylistic data leads us to propose a dating between 1524 and 1526.
