Picture of the Month – The Tailor

Always so many things to love about this painting. The pumpkin breeches, the cod piece, the pinky ring, the flushed cheeks above a scruffy beard, the tailoring shears…

Giovanni Battista Moroni’s The Tailor (from 1565-70) is the Picture of the Month at London’s National Portrait Gallery. See what they have to say about it here.


Tomorrow they’re hosting a talk about fashion and accessories in art, given by Lois Oliver and Jenny Tiramani – wish I could be there! Details here.
