Caravaggio and Caravaggesque Painters Have Moved
Visitors to the Uffizi today we’re surprised to see Caravaggio’s Medusa along with the rest of the paintings housed in Hall 81 in a different hall than expected.
Yesterday, in fact, staff at the Uffizi were hard at work moving the works of art during the one day of the week the museum is closed to the public. In the video below, you can witness the move of Caravaggio’s Medusa.
Artemisia Gentileschi’s “Judith and Holofernes” and other works by the Caraveggesque painters also made the move to the new rooms found immediately after the temporary exhibit dedicated to Grand Prince Ferdinando de’ Medici in the short end of the Uffizi running parallel to the Arno river. So even if you’re tired by the time you reach this part of the museum, take a moment to stop and admire these fine masterpieces of art!
