Caravaggio and The Raising of Lazarus

Caravaggio e la Resurrezione di Lazzaro
16/06 - 15/07/2012
Museo di Roma

After eight months, Caravaggio's masterpiece, commissioned by Giovan Battista Lazzari in 1608 and placed in the family chapel in 1609, can now be enjoyed again by all visitors.

The Raising of Lazarus is the first painting by Caravaggio completed in Messina between 1608 and 1609. The painting was destined for the church of the Padri Crociferi and commissioned by the wealthy Genoese merchant Giovanni Battista Lazzari. On the occasion of the restoration funded by the Associazione Culturale Metamorfosi and carried out by the Istituto Centrale del Restauro, the canvas will be on display for the first time ever in Rome at Palazzo Braschi.
