at The MET – Valentin De Boulogne: Beyond Caravaggio

blog_pic_valetin_de_boulogne

New York, NT – Not since 1973, when an exhibition of the French followers of Caravaggio was held at the French Academy in Rome and at the Grand Palais in Paris, has there been an attempt to bring the achievements of this extraordinary painter before a large public. Therefore, this exhibition will be a landmark event not only for scholars and students, but also for art lovers, who will discover one of the giants of French painting.  Although he is not well known to the general public, Valentin has long been admired by those with a passion for Caravaggesque painting. His work was a reference point for the great realists of the 19th century, from Courbet to Manet, and his startlingly vibrant staging of dramatic events and the deep humanity of his figures, who seem touched by a pervasive melancholy, make his work unforgettable.

Dates: October 7, 2016–January 16, 2017
Exhibition Location: Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall, Gallery 999
