A new exhibition has opened in Berlin at the Gemäldegalerie celebrating the 400th anniversary of Italian Renaissance painter Caravaggio. The exhibition includes two major works, Doubting Thomas and Amor Vincit Omnia, which belong to the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg and the Gemäldegalerie, respectively. Both the works were created for the marchese Vincenzo Giustiniani and were brought to Berlin when the Giustiniani collection was acquired and dismantled in 1815, meaning that this is the first time these two works have been displayed together in nearly 200 years.
Also on display is Caravaggio’s depiction of Saint John the Baptist as a boy from the Musei Capitolini’s Pinacoteca in Rome as well as works by the Utrecht Caravaggisti, paintings by Caravaggio’s Italian contemporaries, works by Peter Paul Rubens and, finally, by Rembrandt. The exhibition is now open and closes March 6th.
