Moroni at the Royal Academy

We thoroughly enjoyed this exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. We arrived knowing very little of the 16th century Italian artist Giovanni Battista Moroni’s work but left eagerly wanting to know more. His ability to paint fabrics, furs and jewels was brilliant, and we stayed until closing to study and admire his handling of paint. Particular favourites of ours included his rosy-cheeked Portrait of a Young Lady, the casually-posed Portrait of Prospero Alessandri, and the Portrait of a Tailor (see photo).
