Quién no ama a Caravaggio...



Caravaggio and his Circle in Rome

10 June – 11 September 2011
Special Exhibition Galleries The National Gallery of Canada and the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, are organizing a major exhibition for the summer of 2011 on the theme of Caravaggio and his Roman followers. Not since Michelangelo or Raphael had one artist in Europe affected so many of his contemporaries over such a broad geography and irrevocably changed the course of painting in a major center. This ambitious exhibition intends to explore the profound impact of Caravaggio’s work on a wide range of painters of Italian, French, Dutch, Flemish and Spanish origin who resided in Rome either during his lifetime or immediately afterwards. Approximately sixty paintings by some of the most important artists of the Baroque period will be included in this show.
