Paintings by Caravaggio on loan

The Barberini Corsini Galleries will take part in the very remarkable exhibition “Caravage à Rome, amis & ennemis” (Paris, Musée Jacquemart-André, 21 september 2018 – 28 january 2019), with two loans by the exceptional italian artist: Saint Francis meditating (on loan already) and Judith and Olopherne, on display at Palazzo Barberini until sunday 9 september.

The exhibition will focus on Caravaggio’s Roman period, from 1592 to 1606, when Caravaggio killed Ranuccio Tomassoni during a heated discussion and fled to exile. It was during this period that Caravaggio met various figures who were to play a key role in his career, but also enemies and rivals who sometimes clashed with him during discussions, lawsuits and even brawls.

The Barberini Corsini Galleries – like other major italian museums as Galleria Borghese, Musei Capitolini, Pinacoteca di Brera – decided to get involved in this high scientific profile exhibition, giving on loan the two masterpieces by Caravaggio: a museum lives and improves itself by sharing and promoting his heritage, even if this means a temporary sacrifice.
