Pontormo from Drawing to Painting


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.
