Exhibition at Accademia Carrara Bergamo, Italy.
With “Un lotto riscoperto” we can greatly appreciate all of the Lorenzo Lotto’s works from his last years spent in Bergamo and the designs for the wooden choir of Santa Maria Maggiore’s cathedral which is one of his most prestigious works. The exhibition evolves around the marquetry of the Creation, a previously unreleased painting, outlined by the artist as a final draft to the cathedral’s administrators. Next to this rediscovered masterpiece and to Lotto’s paintings from Accademia Carrara, we can appreciate other paintings and drawings from the same years in which we can find that cheerful, symbolic and non-conventional narrative also typical of Santa Maria Maggiore’s marquetry. A meaningful example of Lotto’s impressive capacity of illustrating through images is Celena Assumption.
