Ribera: Art of Violence is the first UK show of work by the Spanish Baroque painter, draughtsman and printmaker, Jusepe de Ribera (1591–1652), displaying his most sensational and masterfully composed works.
Scenes of people at work became incredibly popular in the 17th century, but life in the Low Countries was not all work and no play. This display gives us an insight into the past and the lives of ordinary people.
The Gallery houses a collection of over 600 works rich in European masterpieces including Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Canaletto and Poussin.
Discover how our Collection came to be.
Find bespoke accessories, macabre jewellery and unique gifts all inspired by the work of Ribera, as well as materials for making your own art.
Gothic gilt frames, velvet cushions, and mini prints of Jusepe de Ribera's work will add some baroque style to your home.
We offer a range of inspiring opportunities for schools, young people, adults and families to engage with art and the Gallery.
Our Grand Soane Gallery, contemporary event spaces and gardens make us the ideal venue for corporate events, private parties and bespoke weddings.
