Assumption of the Virgin

Giovan Battista Moroni

This altarpiece’s openly stated model is the Assumption in the Duomo Vecchio in Brescia painted by Moroni’s master Moretto. The image, split into two parts, relies for its effect on a chilly, ashen background enlivened shimmering pinks and blues of the figures’ attire. The group of apostles, varied in their features and poses, offers the painter a chance to display the skill as a portraitist for which he is universally celebrated.
