Caravaggio's Roman Period. His friends and enemies
Published: 07 January 2019
From 21 September 2018 to 28 January 2019
When you ask anyone to name an old Italian master – regardless of the era or movement – many are sure to say Caravaggio. This is true for those that may not even have seen any of his work for themselves. The name alone has elevated the man to great heights and he will always be considered one of the greats.
A new exhibition at the Jacquemart-André Museum takes a closer look at his life and work and gives visitors the chance to learn more. This is where we can learn some of the stories behind the man and finally see some of his best work in person.
The show is subtitled “His friends and enemies”. The idea is that the pieces from the artist are accompanied by those from his peers of the period – some friendly, others less so. This collection highlights the greater influence of the man beyond the canvases.
The show continues at the institute until the 28th of January.
