We are excited to announce that we have secured the opportunity for a private tour of “Light and Shadows: Caravaggio, The Italian Baroque Master” for our readers and friends. This is the first time that one of Caravaggio‘s most famous works, Supper at Emmaus, is being exhibited in Asia: a rare opportunity to see this masterpiece for a limited time.

According to the press release,

This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see one of the most famous paintings in the world, by one of the greatest artists of our time and a pioneer of modern painting. The exhibition also brings Hong Kong audiences up-close with one of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s most important works, Supper at Emmaus. The exhibition will be held from March 12 to April 13, 2014.

The exhibition is curated by Professor Frank Vigneron of the Department of Fine Arts, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Join us to find out more about contemporary reinterpretations of classical art, and to know more about these artists in our exclusive tour. This will be followed by drinks and a chat at a local hotel and a chance to meet other readers and fellow art enthusiasts. The event will be low key and intimate – a great opportunity to network and form collaborations and new friendships!
