The Baroque Underworld. Vice and Destitution in Rome

The French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici presents The Baroque Underworld. Vice and Destitution in Rome, an exhibition focusing on the darker side of Baroque Rome, including its slums, taverns and brothels.

The 50 exhibited paintings, drawings and prints – all created in Rome – depict the vice-filled bohemian underworld that attracted artists from all over Europe in the 17th century.

The exhibition features artists such as Claude Lorrain, Valentin de Boulogne, Jan Miel, and Pieter van Laer, and is held in collaboration with the Petit Palais in Paris, where it will be shown next year.
