Bernini and the Roman Baroque Sponsorship

Bernini and the Roman Baroque
Masterpieces from the Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia

June 26 to September 19, 2021

This exciting exhibition of Baroque art marks the museums’s first large-scale exhibition of Old Master paintings and artworks since 1965. The more than 50 works include dramatic canvasses depicting scenes from mythology, the Bible, and history. The exhibition examines the influence of Baroque master Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) on the artistic climate of Rome and beyond through the collection of the Chigi family’s historic Palazzo located about 16 miles outside of Rome. Organized by Glocal and traveled by International Art and Artists, this landmark exhibition will share rare European masterworks from a historic collection with the Hagerstown community and the wider region.
