»» Caravaggio’s Exhibition in Rome

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Caravaggio‘s death, Rome’s Scuderie del Quirinale is hosting an exhibition including many of the great artist’s most representative works.

Among the great pieces are being displayed: the Bacchus from Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, the David With the Head of Goliath from the Borghese Gallery in Rome, the Musicians from the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Lute Player from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Amor Vincit Omnia from the Staatliche Museum in Berlin, and many more masterpieces from the major museums in Italy, as well as around the world. 

The Caravaggio’s exhibition at the Scuderie del Quirinale runs from Feb 20 through Jun 13, 2010. It is set to offer the public a new and stimulating opportunity to penetrate the very essence of the “terribly natural” painter, his revolutionary and astonishing naturalistic criterion, and his stubborn if questioning deference to the depiction of reality which no pattern or school could contain, which was solitary in its poetic greatness.
Exhibition program: daily 10am-10pm (10.30pm Friday and Saturday)

When: Feb 20 – Jun 13, 2010
Where: Rome (Venue: Scuderie del Quirinale)
Find out details of the exhibition on Scuderie del Quirinale website.
