Caravaggio Exhibition, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa

Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome is a major international loan exhibition of approximately 60 works that brings the genius of Caravaggio to Canada for the first time and marks the 400th anniversary of his death. Showing exclusively in Canada at the National Gallery in Ottawa, this ambitious exhibition focuses on the period he spent in Rome. It offers a rare opportunity to explore his unique style, provocative character, and his profound influence on some of the most significant European artists of the Baroque period including Simon Vouet, Peter Paul Rubens and Orazio Gentileschi. Within the exhibition’s thematic display, which brings together scenes of life among the demi-monde, mythology and religion – Caravaggio’s compelling images are juxtaposed with those he inspired. Organized by the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth.

Wow! It was a beautiful collection of works and I learned a lot about this influential artist. I will go again before the exhibition ends.
