Caravaggio, the prodigy of Baroque in Italy

Caravaggio, the prodigy of Baroque in Italy
#Exhibitions

The result of the collaboration between the Pudong Art Museum and Galleria Borghese in Rome, the exhibition presents to the public a wide selection of Baroque masterpieces including 6 iconic paintings by Caravaggio and others by over 40 artists in an installation that recalls 17th century architectural elements and musicals to offer a unique aesthetic and visual experience. Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was one of the most revolutionary painters in the history of Western art. He is considered the last Master of the Renaissance period and the pioneer who started Baroque art. The absolute innovations introduced by Caravaggio in painting were the search for truth against all academic rules and the raw use of light as a metaphor for divine Grace. With the brand new painting style, Caravaggio exerted a profound influence on many artists of his time and later including Rubens, Rembrandt and La Tour.
