The Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte in Naples will be opening a new exhibition this month dedicated to Battistello Caracciolo (1578-1635). Caracciolo’s work was deeply indebted to Caravaggio, who spent a brief period in Naples during 1606 which left a profound impact amongst the artists of the city. The show will contain around 80 works by the artist loaned from Italian institutions and collections from around the world.

The exhibition will run from 9 June–2 October 2022.

The most recent work by the artist offered at Sotheby’s was the following Saint John the Baptist in the Wilderness which sold in December 2019.
