Tickets & Prices

In May 1610, Caravaggio was in Naples working on what would be his last masterpiece.

Just two months later, he passed away under mysterious circumstances. Yet, it was during these tumultuous final years that Caravaggio created some of his most extraordinary works.

His signature style, characterised by tightly framed scenes and dramatic use of light and shadow, captivates audiences. Caravaggio often used real-life models with dirty feet and grimy fingernails.

A highlight of this exhibition is ‘The Martyrdom of Saint Ursula,’ Caravaggio's last-known painting, loaned from the Gallerie d’Italia in Naples. In London for the very first time, this painting portrays violence with unnerving closeness and offers a nuanced exploration of guilt and innocence. Within the artwork, Caravaggio's own self-portrait peers out, seemingly powerless.
