Caravaggio in Rome

Arts and Culture

There is a permanent queue outside the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome for this exhibition of Caravaggio’s work, held to mark the 400th anniversary of the artist’s death. Since being “rediscovered” in the early 20th century, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio has come to be regarded as one of the greatest and most popular painters of all time.
