Resurrezione di Lazzaro

Resurrezione di Lazzaro
c. 1609
Oil on canvas
380 cm × 275 cm (150 in × 108 in)
Museo Regionale, Messina

The Raising of Lazarus, c. 1609, is a painting by the Italian artist Caravaggio (1571–1610).

In August 1608 Caravaggio fled from Malta, where he had been imprisoned for an unknown crime, and took refuge in Sicily with his friend, the artist Mario Minniti. Through Minniti's intercession he procured a number of important commissions, including this for the church of the Padri Crociferi in Messina, where it was presented by the wealthy Genoese merchant Giovanni Battista de' Lazzari on 10 June 1609. The fee was a thousand scudi, more than double any Caravaggio had received previously.
