Regarded as one of art’s great rebels, 17th century painter Salvator Rosa’s independence and defiance against the “powers that be” during his time is boldly depicted in each of his pieces. Beginning December 12, the Kimbell Art Museum presents some of the most dramatic works of the artist in an exhibit titled Salvator Rosa: Bandits, Wilderness, and Magic.
As the title suggests, the exhibit is divided into some of the major themes of Rosa’s work. The pieces, which are on loan from other museums and private collections in North America and Europe, feature an assortment of landscapes, portraits, reenactments of witchcraft and magic, altarpieces and subjects from classical literature.
