The subject of Mercy, the very heart of Christian belief, has been the object of many works of art. Paintings and sculptures or miniatures and engravings, these represent two distinct features: Our Lady of Mercy (or the Blessed Virgin) who gathers Christians under her cloak like a mother who protects, defends and helps her children and the Corporal Acts of Mercy which Christ proclaimed (Gospel of Saint Matthew 25, 35-36) and that every good Christian must perform. Therefore, this exhibit displays several artistic commentaries dedicated to the topic of Mercy and works are subdivided into two sections. The most famous and epitomized work on the subject of Mercy is the painting that Caravaggio created for the Church of the Pio Monte della Misericordia in Naples between 1606 and 1607 known as the “Seven Works of Mercy”. Given the delicacy and the importance of the art, the two great masterpieces by Piero della Francesca and Caravaggio are documented through didactical panels.
