The Supper at Emmaus by Caravaggio in Hong Kong
One of the most valuable paintings by the great Baroque artist arrives at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center
Supper at Emmaus (1605-1606) by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio has long been admired as one of the greatest Italian Baroque masters of all time. One of his most valuable paintings, the Supper at Emmaus (1605-1606) will be exhibited for one month as the centerpiece of the show titled The Hong Kong Jockey Club Presents: Light and Shadows at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center.
Funded by the The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust with a donation of HK$4.82 million and co-organised by the Italian Consulate General in Hong Kong, this initiative was made possible with the cooperation of the Pinacoteca di Brera Museum in Milan. Caravaggio’s work will be shown alongside the contemporary art pieces of four Hong Kong artists: Chow Chun-fai, So Hing-keung, Tsing King-wah and Wucius Wong.
It’s an exhibition not to be missed and a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness a true National Treasure of Italy, so make sure to pay the Asia Society a visit at some point in the coming month.
Group tours are also available to attend every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:30pm for English and 3:30pm for Cantonese.
