After the unveiling of Caravaggio’s first public commission in 1600, artists from across Europe flocked to Rome to see his work. Seduced by the pictorial and narrative power of his paintings, many went on to imitate their naturalism and dramatic lighting effects.
An artist that is still able to stir up emotions from fans worldwide, Caravaggio has been a key influencer in colour, drama and mystery for way more than his 400 years.
Having launched our ‘Caravaggio’ pendants in September of this year, we were delighted to recently see the opening of the new exhibition at the National Gallery. The pendants capture our take on Caravaggio with their own playful hint of light, colour and intensity and we can only hope that our collection does its namesake justice.
