On view NOW: Copying Caravaggio
On view NOW: check out the Copying Caravaggio installation in gallery 217 through 12/10/17.
This installation offers a rare opportunity to compare CMA’s masterwork, Caravaggio’s The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew (part of CMA’s permanent collection) with a copy made by a skilled unknown artist who probably had direct access to the original painting.
For generations, the identity of the copyist has been the subject of intense speculation; some art historians believe it is by Caravaggio himself, although there is no documentation that he copied his own work this precisely.
See images of this installation below and don't miss the opportunity to see this installation in person!
