About the artist
Moroni's portraits were admired for their uncanny realism, distinctively capturing the elegance of the local aristocracy and clergy. They echoed Moretto's style, but where his teacher's religious works were merely ordinary, Moroni's portrait work was extraordinary. His paintings stood out for their deep psychological insight, dignified aura, and unique silvery nuances.
His impact on the art scene was substantial, with artists like Fra Galgario and Pietro Longhi being influenced by his work. His student, Giovanni Paolo of Kavana, also carried forward his legacy. Some of his most celebrated works, including 'The Tailor' (c. 1570), are housed in London's National Gallery, but his portraits can also be found in the Uffizi Gallery and numerous other museums worldwide. His work was critical in shaping the realistic tradition of late Renaissance art.
