Pontormo from Drawing to Painting

Davide Gasparotto

Join Davide Gasparotto, Senior Curator of Paintings, J. Paul Getty Museum, for a discussion on works by Jacopo da Pontormo (1494-1557), executed between 1528 and 1530. At that time Florence was kept under siege until the Medici returned to power bringing to an end the last Republic. The lecture considers Pontormo’s creative process at a crucial stage in his career and offers new insights into the artist’s distinctive contribution to the history of portraiture and devotional painting. 

The exhibition Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters will open at 5:30 pm for program attendees.

Wednesday, October 24, 6:30 pm
Tickets: 
$15; 10 for members; free for students with a valid ID.
