Episode 251 – Caravaggio’s Paintings in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence
February 6, 2024

The Uffizi Gallery in Florence contains three paintings by Caravaggio. Two of them, the “Bacchus” and “The Medusa Shield” were sent by Cardinal Del Monte to Grand Duke Ferdinand de’ Medici, while the third, the “Sacrifice of Isaac,” was acquired later. All three paintings reflect Caravaggio’s unique and revolutionary painting style which incorporates shocking realism, violence, and the dramatic use of light and shadow.
