Long-lost Caravaggio Painting Makes Public Debut in Tokyo

Tuesday, 01 March 2016 02:46 AM

TOKYO (AP) — A long-lost painting by Italian master Caravaggio is being shown to the public for the first time at an exhibition in Tokyo.

"Mary Magdalene in Ecstasy" was found in a private collection in 2014 and identified as an original by Caravaggio specialist Mina Gregori, an Italian art historian. The 1606 work was previously known only through copies made by followers of the artist.

The painting is one of 11 Caravaggio works in the show, Caravaggio and His Time: Friends, Rivals and Enemies, which opened Tuesday at the National Museum of Western Art and runs through June 12. It also includes 40 paintings by other artists who were influenced by him.

Caravaggio, who died in 1610, was an innovative painter widely viewed as one of the founders of Baroque art. His work influenced many other 17th century artists.
