Lorenzo Lotto and his painting

Lorenzo Lotto (c. 1480 – 1556/57) was  painter of the Venetian school, but he worked often in other North Italian cities.
In particular, the artist worked in Treviso and Rome, but painted a lot in Bergamo (Lombardy) and in the Marche region. Obviously his paintings are now also in several museums. Visitors can sometimes see his paintings even during temporary exhibitions, but to admire his wall frescoes and some large paintings it is necessary to go to Italy. Sometimes you have to go to villages.  For example, a great Crucifixion is at Monte San Giusto, a small town in the Marche region. Some paintings are in small museums such as Villa Coloredo Mels in Recanati. We document a little bit.

Whenever possible, museums organize Lotto paintings exhibitions.

Lorenzo Lotto's frescoes are in Bergamo (church San Michele al Pozzo Bianco), in a chapel of a church in the town of Credaro, at Trescore Balneario near Lake Iseo and so on. Some centuries ago some of his frescoes in the Vatican were covered by other paintings.

Lorenzo Lotto made his last paintings in the sanctuary of Loreto. where he retired tired and poor. There are nine Lotto paintings in the sanctuary museum.
