Art by Caravaggio at the National Gallery

Works by Caravaggio, which have never been seen in Ireland, will feature at an exhibition at the National Gallery in Dublin.

Art by Caravaggio at the National Gallery

‘Beyond Caravaggio’, will run from February 11 to May 14, and will feature: Boy Bitten by a Lizard from the collection of the National Gallery in London and Boy Peeling Fruit from the Royal Collection in the UK.

The other Caravaggio works in the show are The Supper at Emmaus from the National Gallery in London and The Taking of Christ from the collection of Ireland’s National Gallery.

With his dramatic use of light and uncompromising realism, Caravaggio is acknowledged as having brought a revolution to painting in the Baroque period.

This exhibition features over 40 works which show how he influenced other artists. These include Valentin de Boulogne’s Concert with Three Figures, Georges de La Tour’s Dice Players and Nicolas Regnier’s St Sebastian being tended by St Irene.

Many works in this collaboration between the National Galleries of Ireland, London and Scotland are on loan from private collections and galleries.
