Caravaggio in Rome

If you happen to be in Rome this weekend, it's worth noting that churches and art galleries in Rome will be staying open overnight to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of Caravaggio, one of the greatest artists ever. Click the title link for a BBC video of Duncan Kennedy's report from Rome. Above is Caravaggio's Amor Victorious (1602-03). CLICK for another of his masterpieces and a link to a Telegraph gallery of some of his finest works.
