Giovanni Moroni at RA

Today the Royal Academy of Arts in London opened Giovanni Battista Moroni, the first comprehensive survey of this unsung genius of late Renaissance portraiture to be held in the UK. Over 40 of his works have been brought together, including a number of altarpieces from the churches of the Diocese of Bergamo, northern Italy, to represent his religious art. Shown is a detail from his portrait of a Young Lady (c.1560-65) who has the eyes of cold command. Entry costs £12 adults, £11 silver surfers (CLICK). Note: the RA's flashy new website demands a modern browser. I had to use Google Chrome to view it.
