Writer and narrator

Xavier Bray is Arturo and Holly Melosi Chief Curator at Dulwich Picture Gallery. He was formerly Assistant Curator of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century European paintings at the National Gallery, London.

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.
