Giovan Battista Moroni

(Albino 1520/4 - Bergamo 1578) Portrait of a learned man *(Giovan Battista Moroni; Albino 1520/4 - Bergamo 1578) Oil on canvas, 69 x 61cm - Uffizi Gallery, Florence Paolo del Serra, one of Leopoldo de' Medici most appreciated advisers as regards to works of art purchase, in 1660 writes about this painting: "It is one of the beautiful portraits I have seen during my life". Leopoldo, who decided to get the picture, judged it "exquisite". This opinion was certainly shared by the other members of the Medici family, because in a short time the painting was moved to the Uffizi Gallery, where many others prestigious works were kept. The appreciation of the panting expressed by its first estimators, has been shared during the centuries by many others critics, who (as we could do today) praised the lively naturalism and the high pictorial quality, which can be seen in the man features and in the book that lies askance on the marble window-sill.
This painting was restored under the project BE PART OF HISTORY realised by VIVAHOTELS with the promotion of the ROMUALDO DEL BIANCO FOUNDATION.
The Project was born in 1994 in order to give a contribution to Florence Artistic Heritage with restoration of pieces of art trough the fundamental emotional involvement of the clients of VivaHotels.
By visiting the gallery where the masterpieces due to be restored is conserved, a VivaHotels guest contributes to the restoration without being involved in the direct cost of the sponsorship. Thus he becomes Patron of the Arts and his name will remain in the files of the Gallery forever.
