Dentro Caravaggio

Dentro Caravaggio

What begins in the work of Caravaggio is, quite simply, modern painting.

André Berne-Joffroy, one of the prime movers in the rediscovery of Caravaggio in the last century

Milan is paying tribute anew to the great artist with the exhibition "Dentro Caravaggio (Inside Caravaggio)", which will be held, once again, at Palazzo Reale from 29 September 2017, and feature 18 masterworks by Caravaggio displayed together for the very first time. The show is rendered unique not only because it will present to the public works from the leading Italian museums and equally important museums abroad, but also by the fact that Caravaggio's canvases will be flanked by their respective X-radiographic images for the the first time. This will enable visitors to follow and discover, through the innovative use of multimedia technologies, the artist's creative process, from the initial idea to the finished work.

The "Caravaggio"

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was born in Milan on 29 September 1571. In just under 15 years – he died in 1610 after a stormy life that ended tragically – he completely revolutionized painting technique through his naturalistic subjects, his realistic settings and his highly-individual use of light and shade.

Caravaggio became the model for many 17th-century artists in Italy, indeed throughout Europe, to the extent that the term Caravaggism was coined to define his influence that extended, to a greater or lesser degree, until the 19th century.

Caravaggio's oeuvre was rediscovered and duly recognized in the 20th century through the research carried out by Roberto Longhi, who dedicated to the artist an epoch-making exhibition at Palazzo Reale, Milan, in 1951
