(Los Angeles—October 26, 2012)—The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is pleased to present Bodies and Shadows: Caravaggio and His Legacy, an exhibition devoted to the legacy of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571 – 1610), one of the most influential painters in European history. The exhibition was co-organized by LACMA, the Musée Fabre, Montpellier, the Musée des Augustins, Toulouse, and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, under the auspices of FRAME (French Regional American
Museum Exchange), an international consortium to which all four museums belong.
