Luigi Reali is mostly known for his paintings that represent holy subjects. Differently, his work as a portraitist is attested only by the Portrait of Giobbe Marazzi (1644), which was published during the exhibition about the painter organized in Lecco in 1989. Are therefore presented other two paintings that demonstrate the Reali’s experience in this field: a portrait of Federico Borromeo, which was considered lost and in this article is published for the first time, and an unpublished painting representing the priest Giovanni Battista Cattaneo Torriani (1647). These and other paintings by Luigi Reali are then compared with some works made by Carlo Ceresa. Finally, is possible to notice that the analyzed portraits belong to a naturalistic current in the field of painting that, in Valsassina, privileged place for Reali’s activity, had some followers among less studied painters. This aspect emerges clearly from a collection of black-and-white photographs that were taken during a reconnaissance of the artworks existing around the territory of Lecco. The initiative, promoted in the 1960s by Azienda Autonoma di Soggiorno e Turismo di Lecco, produced an initial mapping of the Luigi Reali’s works, from which has started the appreciation of the artist.
