The most famous artist who worked in Malta has to be Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), known as Caravaggio. His 'Beheading of St. John the Baptist', a work once described as 'the painting of the 17th century' was commissioned for, and is still on display in, the Oratory of the Co-Cathedral of St. John, Valletta. Another of his most famous works, St. Jerome, is also in the cathedral.
