Giovanni Battista Moroni's portrait of a 16th-century Italian tailor has long been regarded as a masterpiece. Currently on display in The Royal Academy exhibition Giovanni Battista Moroni, The Tailor (c.1570) is, explains the curator, "the first known portrait of a skilled craftsman portrayed as a gentleman. Historically, portraits had been the domain of royals, aristocrats and religious leaders." Amy Macpherson, the Royal Academy’s Senior Digital Producer, invited Savile Row tailor Bryan Manning to "cast his expert eye over the portrait and appraise both the cut of his clothes and the enigmatic expression on his face."
