Caravaggio and his Followers

from 01 March 2016 to 12 June 2016

The new evocative representations of reality, a dramatic use of light, the absolute originality of his iconographic inventions and an unprecedented, very particular technique characterize all of Caravaggio’s works, and constitute the essence of his modernity and charm. The Caravaggio “phenomenon” has, in recent decades, seduced the world , with numerous exhibitions celebrated on four continents, and has even gained the colors of a “myth”.

His work has been often associated with that of his followers who in the early decades of the 17th century spread the manner of Caravaggio throughout Europe leading to the extraordinary results achieved by La Tour, Rembrandt and Vermeer.
