Caravaggio: Masterpieces from the Galleria Borghese

21 November, 2017 to 18 February, 2018


The J Paul Getty Museum
1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles , CA 90049

The Galleria Borghese in Rome houses six paintings by Caravaggio, the largest gatherings of his works in a single collection. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience three masterpieces from this renowned museum, and to gain insight into three crucial stages in Caravaggio's short but intense career.

This exhibition celebrates the launch of the Caravaggio Research Institute, an international project on the artist originating from the collection of the Galleria Borghese. The Institute, supported by Fendi Roma, is dedicated to furthering knowledge and advancing our understanding of Caravaggio and his work through collaborations with museums and institutions worldwide, and the establishment of a digital platform to provide information and support new research.
