Friends & Foes

To mark the 400th anniversary of Caravaggio's death in July 1610, Whitfield Fine Art in London has opened a major exhibition of paintings by his contemporaries: Caravaggio’s Friends & Foes. This masterly depiction of Saint Sebastian is by his friend Louis Finson. Twenty-six paintings are on display, including works by Prospero Orsi, Gentileschi, Lo Spadarino, Jusepe de Ribera, Pietro Paolini, Bartolomeo Cavarozzi, Angelo Caroselli, Tommaso Salini, Giovanni Baglione, Antiveduto Gramatica and Cavalier d’Arpino. The exhibition continues until 23 July and looks well worth a visit. Click the title link for details.
