Light, darkness, and drama – the revolutionary influence of Caravaggio

About

The dramatic lighting and intense naturalism of Caravaggio's paintings inspired a multitude of artists during his lifetime and in the decades immediately following his untimely death.

'Beyond Caravaggio' is the first major UK exhibition to explore the impact of Caravaggio’s work both on the art of his contemporaries and followers.

Artists as diverse as GentileschiValentin, and Honthorst were drawn to his strikingly original paintings. Each absorbed a different aspect of his work, helping to propagate his style across Europe and giving rise to the international movement known as ‘Caravaggism’.

This exhibition is a collaboration between The National Gallery, London, the National Gallery of Ireland and the National Galleries of Scotland.
