The altarpiece Nicolo Bonafede commissioned Lorenzo Lotto to paint for the church of Santa Maria della Pietà in Monte San Giusto (c. 1529–1533) includes a portrait of the patron that emphasizes Bonafede's devotion to the theme of the Pietà and suggests a particularly close relationship with the sacred figures present at the Crucifixion. Other works by Lotto exhibit similar complicated depictions of personal and devotional relationships.
