Caravaggio e caravaggeschi

Daniel B. Gallagher reviews Caravaggio e caravaggeschi a Firenze, at both the Galleria Palatina at the Palazzo Pitti and the Uffizi in Florence. The exhibition closes January 9th. Caravaggio e caravaggeschi examines the premise "that Caravaggio’s influence made a subtle incursion into Florentine painting despite efforts to resist it, and, perhaps most audaciously, that this resistance was a sorely missed opportunity for Florentine painting to evolve along modern lines and perhaps to have thrived much longer than it did."
