Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe

Centraal Museum, Utrecht

16 Dec 2018 - 24 Mar 2019

The rare loan of Caravaggio’s monumental Entombment of Christ (1602–03) from the Vatican is the highlight of this exhibition, which examines how the Italian baroque painter, along with his followers in Rome, inspired a generation of artists in Utrecht – most notably Dirck van Baburen, Hendrick ter Brugghen and Gerard van Honthorst. Find out more about ‘Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe’ from the Centraal Museum’s website (and read Michael Prodger’s feature for Apollo here).
