Caravaggio: The Final Years DVD
In 1606 Caravaggio was at the height of his fame as a painter when he killed a man in a duel and, under sentence of death, fled Rome, never to return; four years later, aged 39, he died of a fever.
This film traces the artist’s restless, itinerant last years, from Naples to Malta and Sicily, while his dramatic pictorial style became tinged with introspection, melancholy and a preoccupation with religion and death.
This DVD shines a dramatic spotlight on Caravaggio’s last years in exile and includes the great paintings of his late years and atmospheric location footage from Naples, Malta and Sicily.
