Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of National Gallery  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

Caravaggio's paintings have always inspired artists with their dramatic lighting and intense naturalism, and 'Beyond Caravaggio' will explore the impact that his work had both on his contemporaries, and the generations that followed.

Everyone from Gentileschi, Valentin and Honthorst were drawn to his paintings, each absorbing a different aspect of his work, and giving rise to the movement known as 'Caravaggism'.
