Giovanni Battista Moroni is considered one of the great portraitists of sixteenth-century Italy. Published with The Frick Collection to accompany the first major exhibition devoted to the artist in the United States, this sumptuous volume celebrates the painter's eye for exquisite detail in depicting his sitters' interior and material worlds. New scholarship includes in-depth studies of individual portraits, as well as essays on the artist in the context of portrait painting in northern Italy in the later cinquecento.
