On the occasion of the “Early Modern Rome, 1341-1667” conference, the University of California, Rome Study Center commemorated the anniversary of Caravaggio’s death with an exhibition of a painting of Narcissus by a follower of Caravaggio. The work had been recently rediscovered in a private collection in Rome and after a series of scientific and historical analyses, the painting appears to be close to the style of the Caravaggeschi. The painting was accompanied by a selection of scientific tests elaborated by Ars Mensurae and a precious 16th-century edition of the Metamorphoses by Ovid translated by Ludovico Dolce.
