Ecce Homoby Caravaggio, thanks to the generosity of its new owner, will remain on display in a special individual installation at the Museo Nacional del Prado that can be visited from May 28 to October 2024.

The work, painted by the great Italian artist around 1605-09 and which was part of the private collection of Philip IV of Spain, is one of approximately only 60 known works by Caravaggio that exist, which gives it a extraordinary value.

Since its appearance at auction three years ago, Ecce Homo It has represented one of the greatest discoveries in the history of art, achieving an unprecedented consensus regarding its authentication. After an in-depth diagnostic investigation carried out by Claudio Falcucci – a nuclear engineer specialized in the application of scientific techniques to the study and conservation of cultural heritage -, the restoration has been carried out rigorously, and each decision has been supported by an exhaustive evaluation of the materials of the work and the conservation history of the painting, reaffirming the initial attribution to the Italian master.
