Cesare borgia
 by Altobello Melone 

by Bartolomeo Veneto

The Borgia apartment suite was closed off by Julius I! who refused to live in rooms sullied by his venal predecessor as well as its frescoes covered with black crepe.
They remained closed for 386 years, until the apartments were reopened in 1889 to serve as display rooms for the Vatican's collection of modern religious art with no artistic value.

Present exhibition:


( 15/03/2012 to 15/07/2012 )

    Born in Rome, Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 - 1653) dramatic realistic style is marked by a gloomy caravaggesque  chiaroscuro  much appreciated at the time.
The scenes are depicted within a allegorical manipulation of bright and dark colours. The trauma of her rape is central to her iconography. It seems to be a sort of pictorial catharsis in order to deal with her pain.
Her work is rich in decorative luxurious paraphernalia and ostentatious visual statement suggested man’s wickedness
