Rome showcases Caravaggio

2010-02-20 11:33

Rome - An exhibition celebrating the Baroque master Caravaggio is opening in Rome to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of the Lombard artist who revolutionised art with his realism and interplay of light and shadow.

The exhibition brings together 24 paintings from museums across Europe and the United States of undisputed authenticity.

Curators said the aim was to present the true Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio after a century in which many works of other artists have been falsely attributed to him.

The exhibit opens at the Scuderie del Quirinale, a museum fashioned from the stables of Rome's Quirinal Palace on Saturday and will continue until June 13.
