11 Nov-5 Feb 2011. An exhibition of 140 paintings by Caravaggio, Annibale Carraci and their contemporaries working in Rome from 1595-1635. The selected works, some of which have never been exhibited before in Italy, provide a visual and historical insight into the turbulent events in Rome in the 17th century. Included is S. Agostino, a painting whose recent attribution to Caravaggio has resulted in an ongoing debate. Among the events taking place around the exhibition is a day dedicated to the S. Agostino painting, conducted in collaboration with the University of Rome, and in the presence of protagonists from both sides of the argument. The exhibition also assesses the relationship between Caravaggio and Annibale Carracci, juxtaposing both artists
