Live at the National Gallery: Interpreting the Old Master Lorenzo Lotto

Written by
Published date 07 December 2018

Taking inspiration from the Old Master Lorenzo Lotto Portraits exhibition showing at the National Gallery, BA Costume Design and Costume Interpretation students from Wimbledon College of Arts, UAL in collaboration with The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts have designed an immersive, costumed performance that will be presented live in the galleries against the original portraits on Friday 7 December.

Costume Design students have responded to the artefacts in the portraits to create dramatic and contemporary interpretations of the Renaissance themes; and Costume interpretation students have responded to the historical dress, detailing and silhouette within the pictures to create beautifully constructed and embellished realisations of the featured garments.

Celebrated as one of the greatest portraitists of the Italian Renaissance, Lorenzo Lotto Portraits is rated five stars by the Guardian and Evening Standard.
