About the exhibition
With 37 works by 25 artists from the Gallerie Nazionali Barberini Corsini and MAXXI an exhibition that creates a dialogue between the work of old masters and contemporary artists on the theme of the portrait and the self-portrait. From Caravaggio to Giulio Paolini, from Raphael to Richard Serra, from Bernini to Yan Pei Ming, from Piero di Cosimo to Kiki Smith, from Luigi Ontani to Pietro da Cortona, the works recounted the themes of temporality, the representation of power, eroticism, the intimate and the exotic.
