The Art of Italy

Caravaggio - A Boy Peeling Fruit (c.1592-93) The Royal Collection © 2007, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth IIA major new exhibition opens at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, on 30 March and continues until 20 January 2008: The Art of Italy in the Royal Collection: Renaissance and Baroque. For this first exhibition of the Royal Collection's Italian art in 40 years, over 90 paintings and 85 drawings by Renaissance and Baroque masters are being brought together from royal palaces and residences across Britain. Caravaggio's A Boy Peeling Fruit - recently confirmed as having been painted by Caravaggio - is one of these masterpieces. Adults £8, silver surfers £7. Hey, why should youngsters under 17 gain admission for £4 and the over 60's be forced to pay 87.5% of the adult rate? Appalling! With respect, Ma'am, silver surfers expect 50%.
