a 400 years after the death of Caravaggio Rome has decided to recall the genius of the seventeenth century with an exhibition at Scuderie del Quirinale.
The exhibition “Caravaggio” will be running until 13 June neighbor and collects 27 of 40 works Lombard painted by the artist. All these works help traces the career of Michelangelo Merisi and document the technical, vision, innovation and if we also want the chance pictorial.
In fact no one before him was able to “give light in the dark” nor represent the reality that naturalism; in the most anyone has been able to bring characters on the canvas off the street and turn them into genuine religious icons.
Thus, in addition to Boy with a Basket of Fruit (one of his most important early works), we find Bacchus Uffizi, The musicians and the Lute, Then you come to admire David with the Head of Goliath and the Annunciation… a collection of short works that make tribute to the master of light.
