Discover our exquisite oil painting, "Portrait of Lady as Lucretia," created in the style of Lorenzo Lotto. Originally painted around 1530 by the bohemian and controversial artist Lorenzo Lotto. Capturing the essence of his unique approach. Although the sitter's identity remains unknown, we infer her name to be Lucretia, inspired by the Roman legend of the 'Rape of Lucretia.'

Lotto's masterful painting features the Latin inscription "Nec ulla impudica Lucretiae exemplo vivet" (No woman survives dishonour, Lucretia sets the example) and a poignant depiction of a figure with a dagger pointed towards its heart. These elements strongly suggest the tragic story of Lucretia, who chose death over dishonor.

Our painting, created in the style of Lorenzo Lotto, stays true to Lotto's meticulous detail and emotional depth. While Lotto's original Lucretia appears skeptical of the act of suicide, our interpretation further emphasizes this skepticism, offering a modern perspective on the legendary narrative.
