Gherardo delle Notti. Bizarre Paintings and Merry Suppers

Exhibition at the Uffizi Gallery

 

The exhibition Gherardo delle Notti: Bizzare Paintings and Merry Suppers“ is dedicated to a not very well-known figure of 16th century painting. Who was the artist named Gerrit van Honthorst? A follower of Caravaggio with an adventurous spirit and quick with the sword, or a reserved and well-mannered man? If some mysteries remain about his life and his Italian sojourn, the exhibition shades some light on his fascinating artworks. Indeed the nickname Gherardo delle Notti (Gerrit of the Nights) derives from his skillfull representation of night scenes, lighted only by candles.
