Caravaggio in Mexico City

๐Ÿ‘€ HELLO BEAUTIES! CARAVAGGIO WORKS ALWAYS ARE MAGNIFICIENT. THANKS TO MELANIE FOR HER REMINDING AND HER GREAT SKETCH.

Melanie Franz

I went to a Caravaggio exhibition at the Museo Nacional de Artes in Mexico City back in spring 2018.

I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed (maybe also my fault as I did not look at the information properly), but they only had one painting by Caravaggio. The rest of the exhibit was about him in form of a multimedia show and artworks by other artists that got inspired by him.

Nevertheless, I learned a lot about his style and especially his use of light and shadow. The museum in general was definitely worth a visit, as it is in a stunning building. Especially the permanent exhibition was great. Thatยดs where I spotted the little horses from yesterday.

Below my impression of the only painting by Caravaggio at the exhibition.

  2. I can imagine how disappointed you must have felt seeing just the one Caravaggio. I wrote a blog some time back about unexpectedly coming across his work in the French church in the middle of Rome. I almost cried I was so thrilled to see the real deal. Love the sketch, Vivienne
