Into the Dark

Contemporary Tenebrism

For all their stark intensity, Carvaggio’s paintings pulse with energy. It’s his painting style that defines late Baroque artwork—dramatic, emotional compositions—crafted with an ingenious use of light and dark. While high-contrast lighting is widely recognized as chiaroscuro, a substyle called tenebrism, also practiced by the Renaissance’s most celebrated provocateur, heightens these qualities tenfold. Join our curators as they cast new light on this overlooked technique with 54 evocative works that reintroduce tenebrist philosophy.
