Caravaggio's Entombment Comes to Moscow (video)
Caravaggio, The Entombment (1602-1604, Pinacoteca Vaticana, Rome)

The exhibition of the famous Italian Baroque painter, Michelangelo di Caravaggio, opens at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow on November 26, 2011.

      The works on display will aim to showcase the impact of Caravaggio on the 17th c. painting. In total, the Muscovites and city visitors will see 11 paintings, among which - A Boy with a Basket of Fruit (Galleria Borghese), a 1606 version of Supper at Emmaus (Galleria Brera), The Conversion of Saul (Santa Maria del Popolo). The centrepiece of the exhibition - The Entombment (1602-1604) from Pinacoteca Vaticana in Rome.

      Considering that not many Caravaggio's paintings have reached us, they are normally stored in museums and private collections as very precious objects. An exhibition of his works previously attracted multitudes of visitors to the National Gallery in London in 2005. Now it is Moscow that will play a host to the show of artistic legacy of enfant terrible of the Italian Baroque.

      The Caravaggio exhibition runs until February 19, 2012.
