This book was published to accompany the largest ever Caravaggio and Bernini exhibition outside of Italy. Featuring illuminating essays by international Baroque specialists alongside high quality reproductions of masterpieces by Caravaggio, Bernini and their contemporaries.

Rome circa 1600: the cosmopolitan arena of ancient nobility, ambitious clergy, genius artists and brilliant scholars, but also a city of trickery and deceit, street fighters and prostitutes. In short, the stage of the Baroque. The main protagonists on the artistic stage were the painter Caravaggio and the sculptor Bernini. They represent the new artistic zest that allowed Rome to grow into the vibrant cultural heart of Europe. They stand for the intensive interaction between painters and sculptors, and for a new art that focused more than ever on portraying and evoking affetti , human emotions. An art of movement and feint, of drama and classical reserve, of jest, beauty and horror.
