The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza will be presenting Caravaggio and the Painters of the North, an exhibition that focuses on Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (Milan, 1571 – Porto Ercole, 1610) and his influence on the northern European artists who were fascinated by his painting. There will be 53 paintings on display, twelve of them by Caravaggio. The Caravaggio paintings are loaned from private collections, museums and institutions such as the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Florence Galleria degli Uffizi, the Saint Petersburg Hermitage Museum, Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum and the church of San Pietro in Montorio in Rome.
