New exhibition 'Caravaggio: Fashion & Fabrics' opens today! See historic textiles never before displayed in the UK! https://t.co/L1dSvl3ReW
Twitter userMuseum of St John – 3 months ago
We are very pleased to announce the opening of a new temporary exhibition at the Museum of the Order of St John. From the 3rd October 2016 to the 31st January 2017, 'Caravaggio: Fashion & Fabrics' will be on display in the Link Gallery.

This free exhibition will showcase historic textiles never before seen in the UK, which are contemporary to the clothes worn in the Caravaggio painting 'The Cardsharps', on permanent display in our galleries.

These historic textiles will bring the painting to life through an immediate point of reference and allowing the viewer to make striking visual comparisons between object and artistic representation, seeing how Caravaggio has captured the sheen of the cloth, the pattern of the weave and the richness of colour. Through this exhibition a unique insight into Caravaggio’s work is gained, and a further aspect of his artistic technique is given new emphasis.

We are incredibly grateful to the Diocese of Novara for the loan of objects from its collections, as well as to the luxury fabric manufacturer, Rubelli. This exhibition would not be possible without the patronage of the Region of Piedmont and ATL Tourism, Province of Novara.
