23 Feb-22 May 2005. The exhibition takes a close look at the later years of Caravaggio, including the famous work entitled Flagellation which was painted for the de Franchis chapel in San Domenico Maggiore in Naples. Caravaggio in his later years became more introspective and searching and his late style is said to be more sympathetic to human nature although his fascination with dark and light stayed with him. In his final years the painter travelled to Malta and Sicily partly on trips of discovery and partly as he was fleeing justice after he killed a man in a duel in Rome in 1606. As well as the more famous paintings by Caravaggio there will be the opportunity to see some works attributed to the master by art critics as well as some copies and versions of lost originals.
Address National Gallery, Sainsbury Wing, Trafalgar Square, London, WC2N 5DN. Closest tube stations are Charing Cross and Leicester Square. Open Thursdays to Tuesdays from 10.00 to 18.00, Wednesdays until 21:00.
