After Caravaggio. The Neapolitan seventeenth century collections of Palazzo Pretorio and De Vito Foundation

From 14 December 2019 to 13 April 2020

“Never seen” paintings by the De Vito Foundation together with the most evocative seventeenth century paintings of the Palazzo Pretorio Museum give life to an exhibition that aims to tell the decisive impact of Caravaggio’s painting on Neapolitan school artists in the seventeenth century, through a choice of works of  the two collections. The exhibition presents a number of paintings that is not high, but of great quality, and is structured around some of the most important personalities of the Neapolitan artistic scene. The paintings of Palazzo Pretorio interact with those of the De Vito collection, according to a chronological, stylistic and thematic sequence: a journey that starts with post Caravaggio’s Naturalism, in the different interpretations of Neapolitan artists, up to the pictorial expressiveness of the Baroque language.
