The rediscovery of Judith and Holofernes, a long lost masterpiece by Caravaggio (1571-1610) is a major event. It brings with it an important addition to the reconstruction and understanding of the oeuvre of one of the greatest painters in art history. Caravaggio is today an almost mythological figure whose revolutionary vision makes him one of the geniuses of pictorial representation. In addition to his artistic genius, his adventure-filled life with all of its violent chapters has turned Caravaggio into a true romantic hero.
