Michaelangelo Merisi da CARAVAGGIO - St John the Baptist in the wilderness Darkness and Light: Caravaggio and his world

11 March to 30 May 2004

Admission fees apply, details below.

Darkness & Light: Caravaggio & his World features key paintings demonstrating the scope and quality of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio's (1571-1610) revolutionary vision.

Almost instantly after his arrival in Rome, Caravaggio's style was taken up by other artists and over the ensuing decades it spread through most of Europe. Darkness & Light: Caravaggio & his World includes outstanding works by these Caravaggisti, including Bartolomeo Manfredi, Orazio and Artemisia Gentileschi, Georges de la Tour, Jusepe de Ribera and Gerrit von Honthorst.

Darkness & Light: Caravaggio & his World is jointly organised by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney.

An exquisite full-colour catalogue of the exhibition is available in the NGV Shop.
