From Caravaggio to Bernini
Last 7 June, the Royal Palace of Madrid opened its exhibition “From Caravaggio to Bernini. Masterworks of the Italian Seicento from the Royal Colections”, a selection of works of art by Italian artists or inspired in the Italian arts, made in the 17th century (the Italian Seicento). It includes paintings by artists such as Caravaggio, Il Guercino, Charles Le Brun or Guido Reni, and sculptures by Bernini, Algardi, Duquesnoy and Fisher von Erlach, all of them property of Spanish National Heritage. La túnica de José (Joseph’s Tunic), one of the paintings made by Diego Velázquez after his first trip to Italy, will also be exhibited.
This is the perfect ocasion to know, all at once, one of the most interesting artistic periods in Europe, the objects kept by Spanish National Heritage and the Royal Palace of Madrid.
