Caravaggio exhibition in Florence at the Uffizi Galleri
Florence’s Uffizi and Pitti gallery have chosen to explore “Caravaggio and the Caravaggesques in Florence” from May 22 to October 10, 2010.The Florence exhibit has gathered together the Caravaggio works resident in the city and compares them to works by followers or those influenced by the artist. This includes quality works like the famous Bacchus and the Sacrifice of Isaac (pictured above), both from the Uffizi Gallery. This makes for a show of over one hundred paintings that will surely contribute to our understanding of Caravaggio’s influence in Florence, where we don’t know for sure if he even resided; visitors should not, however, expect a whole room full of paintings by the master – these kinds of shows seldom work that way.
It's a fantastic reason to come to visit Florence or it's better to say, one more reason. Enjoy art, enjoy Florence, stay at Hotel Mario's, only 10 minutes walking far from the Uffizi Gallery. Hotel Mario's, a small place for great visitors.
