Exhibition Caravaggio-Bernini. Baroque in Rome, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Exhibtion Caravaggio-Bernini. Baroque in Rome, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. The beginnings of baroque in Rome, with starring roles for the painter Caravaggio and the sculptor Bernini. A story of immense artistic vigour in Rome and radical renewal in the arts in the approximate period from 1600 to 1640. The exhibition will be guided by key terms in the artistic vocabulary of the time, such as wonderment (meraviglia), vivacity (vivezza), motion (moto), jest (scherzo) and horror (terribilità). Very impressive works.
