Paintings between 1513 and 1524 (Bergamo)
by Lorenzo Lotto

In 1513 Lotto took up residence in Bergamo, and he spent a fruitful decade in this city in Venetian Lombardy. He painted three great altarpieces for churches in Bergamo (the San Bartolomeo Altarpiece, the San Bernardino Altarpiece, and the Santo Spirito Altarpiece) between 1516 and 1521. The support of the leading local families enabled him to develop his powers as a portrait painter and his inventiveness as a painter of devotional images for the home. During his period he also undertook the most extensive fresco cycle of his career, that of the Oratorio Suardi at Trescore, a few miles out of Bergamo.
