Upcoming Exhibitions

Caravaggio: Martha and Mary Magdalene

6/23/19 to 9/22/19 | Focus II Gallery

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) was one of the most influential figures in the history of European art; he revolutionized painting through his theatrical compositions and gritty realism observed from life. Martha and Mary Magdalene (c. 1598), on loan from the Detroit Institute of Arts, is a masterpiece from Caravaggio’s early career in Rome that demonstrates his use of sharp light and dark contrasts for a dramatic depiction of a religious scene. With fewer than 10 paintings by Caravaggio in the US, this is a rare opportunity to see an extraordinary work by one of the most celebrated Old Master painters.
