The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: The Road to the Baroque — Masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum
Characterised by the dramatic contrast of light and dark, exaggerated movement and pronounced figures’ facial expressions, historians coined the term Baroque to define 17th century Italian art which focuses on high tension and realistic representations of emotions. Baroque artists were arguably the originators of immersive experiences. Their paintings are compelling and strikingly real, often immersing the audience in the scene. Showcasing around 40 Neapolitan paintings from the Capodimonte Museum, its debut exhibition in Hong Kong includes works of 16th and 17th century masters, such as Titian, Annibale Carracci and Artemisia Gentileschi, allowing the audience to enjoy an art experience that connects past and present.
