Lotto, Lorenzo, c.1480-1556, Venetian painter. His work reflects the influence of several great contemporaries from Bellini to Titian, but preserves throughout a fine sensibility and intimacy quite his own. Notable among his early works are St. Jerome (Louvre); the fresco Annunciation (Church of San Domenico, Recanati, Italy); and Madonna and Saints (cathedral, Asolo, Italy). Of a later period are Bridal Couple (Prado); Christ and the Adulteress (Louvre); and portraits in the galleries of London, Milan, Rome, and Vienna. After 1554 Lotto lived with the monks of the sanctuary at Loreto, where his Presentation in the Temple remains. He is represented in numerous American collections including the Philadelphia Museum; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and the Metropolitan Museum.
