Caravaggio exhibition is coming to Monaco
Next summer an amazing exhibition will be held in The Principality of Monaco; Caravaggio The Power of Light, organised by the Gaudio Group Monaco.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to view various magnificent original works from Caravaggio, with a further twenty works being exhibited from the Caravaggio school.
The Monaco based event will also offer a rare opportunity to art collectors, since a selection of Caravaggio artworks will be available for sale during the exhibition.
Who Was Caravaggio?
Caravaggio, or Michelangelo Merisi, was an Italian painter who is considered one of the fathers of modern painting.
Caravaggio was a controversial and influential Italian artist.
He was orphaned at age 11 and apprenticed with a painter in Milan. He moved to Rome, where his work became popular for the tenebrism technique he used, which used shadow to emphasize lighter areas.
His career, however, was short-lived. Caravaggio killed a man during a brawl and fled Rome. He died not long after, on July 18, 1610.
