TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR TO EXPLORE CARAVAGGIO ART
Caravaggio paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, had a formative influence on Baroque painting. Caravaggio's innovation was a radical naturalism that combined close physical observation with a dramatic, even theatrical, use of chiaroscuro which came to be known as tenebrism (the shift from light to dark with little intermediate value). Caravaggio’s artwork became a mainspring of realism and he himself was one of the most prominent innovators of Baroque paintings.
LEARN ABOUT CARAVAGGIO’S LIFE
Michelangelo Merisi (Michael Angelo Merigi or Amerighi) da Caravaggio 29 September 1571 – 18 July 1610) was an Italian painter active in Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily between 1592 and 1610. Caravaggio trained as a painter in Milan under Simone Peterzano who had himself trained under Titian. In his twenties, Caravaggio moved to Rome where there was a demand for paintings to fill the many huge new churches and palazzos being built at the time. It was also a period when the Church was searching for a stylistic alternative to Mannerism in religious art that was tasked to counter the threat of Protestantism.
