This exhibition focuses on Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) and his influence on the circle of northern European painters who were fascinated by his work and disseminated his style. Caravaggio and the Painters of the North, commissioned by Gert Jan van der Sman, staff member of the Dutch Institute for Art History in Florence (Utrecht University) and Professor at Leiden University, analyses the legacy of Caravaggio and offers an idea of the wide range of reactions that his works provoked.
The exhibition includes a group of paintings that encompass all of Caravaggio’s career, from his Roman period to the dark, moving compositions of his final years, which shows alongside a selection of works by his most important followers in Holland, Flanders and France, including Nicolas Regnier, Dirk van Baburen, David de Haen, Gerrit van Honthorst, Hendrick Ter Brugghen, Simon Vouet, Claude Vignon, Nicolas Tournier and Valentin de Bolougne.
