Exhibition: Caravaggio’s Roman Period, his friends and enemies
This autumn 2018, the musée Jacquemart-André celebrates Caravaggio (1571 - 1610), one of the most revolutionary Italian painters of 17th century, with the exhibition “Caravaggio's Roman Period, his friends and enemies”. This unpublished retrospective brings together for the first time about ten masterpieces from his Roman period, most of which have never been presented in France. They will be accompanied by the works of the artist's illustrious contemporaries, such as the Cavalier d'Arpin, Orazio Gentileschi, Giovanni Baglione or Jusepe de Ribera, in order to reveal the relations and influences of the Roman artistic environment on the painter. Visitors can admire, among others, the famous “Lute Player” and “John the Baptist (Youth with a Ram)”. This unique event is to be discovered a few metro stations from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
