Caravaggio & Bernini

The physical exhibition Caravaggio & Bernini at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna closed on January 19, 2020, but remote visitors can continue to enjoy the online version. There are eight thematic sections in the show: Wonderment & Astonishment, Horror & the Terrifying, Love, Vision, Suffering & Compassion, Liveliness, Motion & Action, and Jest. Visitors can choose to move through the digital exhibition in order, or jump to particular sections using the menu (accessible in the upper left corner of the site). Each section begins with a short video examining a work, narrated in German, with subtitles available in English and German. After playing this video, users can scroll down to read more and view images of example artworks by artists contemporary with Caravaggio and Bernini. For example, Vision begins with a recorded examination of Artemisia Gentileschi's Mary Magdalen in Ecstasy and also includes Caravaggio's St Francis in Meditation. At the bottom of each page, the previous and next sections are linked. The exhibition also contains Baroque Stars in Rome, an about the artists section, which explains the environment in which Caravaggio and Bernini worked. The site text is available in English and German.
