The Death of Cleopatra (Spanish: La Muerte de Cleopatra[1] ), also known simply as Cleopatra,[2] is an 1881 painting made by the Filipino painter Juan Luna. The famous painting[3] was a silver medalist or second prize winner[1][4][5] during the 1881 National Exposition of Fine Arts in Madrid[6][7] (Exposicion Nacional de Bellas Artes[8]). The 1881 Madrid painting contest was Luna's first art exposition.[9] Because of the exposure, Luna received a pension scholarship at the Ayuntamiento de Manila.[9] After the painting competition, Luna sold it for 5,000 Spanish pesetas,[10] the highest price for a painting at the time.[11] As Luna's "graduation work", The Death of Cleopatra was acquired by the Spanish government[12] for one thousand duros.[13]
