Bellini, Titian, and Lotto: North Italian Paintings from the Accademia Carrara, Bergamo

In the August 16, 2012 issue, Sanford Schwartz writes: “Covering works made in Venice and elsewhere in northern Italy between roughly 1450 and 1570, Bellini, Titian, and Lotto gives us the opportunity of seeing choice and unusual pictures by Giovanni Bellini and Titian, probably the most acclaimed figures of the Renaissance in Venice, and by some of their lesser-known contemporaries. But it is Giovanni Battista Moroni’s portrait of the intent young man, and the artist’s hardly less phenomenal portrait of a little girl—paintings that, in their emotional directness, seem as if they could have been done the other day—that make the show momentous. Once they are encountered, all the other pictures somehow go on hold.”

The Met is open Tuesday-Thursday from 9:30 AM-5:30 PM, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 AM-9 PM, and Sunday from 9:30 AM-9 PM.
