Caravaggio & Bernini

This exhibition presents an impressive and powerful visual baroque spectacle at the Kunsthistorisches Museum for the first time. The main focus is on the revolutionary oeuvres of two outstanding artists ‒ the painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) and the sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680).

Although the Kunsthistorisches Museum houses the largest and most valuable holdings of works by Caravaggio and his followers outside Italy, no museum in Austria has ever hosted a comprehensive exhibition on him and his time. Works by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, a sculptor who was a generation younger than Caravaggio, are also rarely shown here. 

Bringing together around sixty important works – both paintingsand sculptures – by artists from the early seventeenth century, the exhibition explores the phenomenon of the rise and flowering of the Baroque, and presents radically new works produced in Rome at this important juncture in art history: fascinating artworks full of drama, intense passions, strong movement and colourful theatricality. Both Caravaggio and Bernini towered over their contemporaries, and their novel idioms and unconventional
lifestyles cut quite a dash in contemporary Rome.
