Renaissance portraiture, coming soon to the RA

London -Giovanni Battista Moroni has been described by The Guardian as “the kind of obscure genius it’s a delight to discover” – and we couldn’t agree more. So it’s time for us to reveal why his is a name you need to know. In 16th century Italy, Moroni was an artist ahead of his time. He is best known for his startlingly realistic portraits – important stepping stones in the development of naturalistic painting. Three centuries before Manet famously brought Parisian society to life, Moroni was immortalising the people of Bergamo in equally vivid fashion. He depicted a wide social spectrum, from aristocrats to workers; in fact, his iconic portrait, The Tailor, was revolutionary in the dignity it conferred on a man working with his hands. This remarkable painting is just one of the unmissable highlights of our career-spanning exhibition. Follow this link for further info.
