About the exhibition
Caravaggio revolutionised European painting during the Baroque period with uncompromising realism and dramatic use of light. This exhibition brings together over 40 works to show the ways in which artists adopted Caravaggio’s ideas and developed them to become masters in their own right. Four works by Caravaggio take centre stage: The Supper at Emmaus, 1602; The Taking of Christ, 1602; Boy Bitten by a Lizard, 1594-95, and Boy Peeling Fruit, c.1592. These will be joined by masterpieces by the Caravaggisti. This exhibition is a unique collaboration between the National Gallery, London, the National Gallery of Ireland, and the National Gallery of Scotland.
