Rome has long been a key destination for artists. At the beginning of the
17th century, painters from across Europe flocked to the Eternal City to
see the revolution caused by painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
(1571 – 1610). Everyone copied his stark contrast of light and dark,
powerful realism and dramatic sense of staging. The works presented in
this exhibition, all from the Museum and Gallery at Bob Jones University,
celebrate how Caravaggio shaped the Italian Baroque and galvanized
numerous followers. One of the main highlights is a Crucifixion by Peter
Paul Rubens, who spent more than eight years in Italy.
Trophime Bigot (b. Arles, 1579; d. Avignon, 1650), “St. Sebastian
