CARAVAGGIO IN ROME, FRIENDS AND ENEMIES

MUSÉE JACQUEMART-ANDRÉ

In the fall of 2018, Culturespaces and the Jacquemart-André Museum are organizing an exhibition dedicated to Caravaggio (1571-1610), an emblematic figure of 17th century Italian painting. For this unique event, nearly 10 of the artist's masterpieces will be gathered on an exceptional basis in France. 

From the greatest Italian museums, such as the Palazzo Barberini, the Galleria Borghese and the Novel Capitolini in Rome, the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, the Musei di Strada Nuova in Genoa or the Museo Civico Ala Panzone in Cremona, these extraordinary paintings retrace the Roman career of Caravaggio (1592-1606) until exile. They will dialogue with the works of illustrious contemporarues, such as the Rider of Arpin, Annibal Carraci, Orazio Gentileschi, Giovanni Baglione or Ribera, in order to unveil the full extent of Caravaggio's innovative genius and to show the artistic effervescence that then reigned in the Eternal City.
