Caravaggio (originally his name is Michelangelo Merisi. Caravaggio was the name of his native village and was the chosen by the painter). He was the great father and creator of the Baroque movement. I study this painter in my class Of History of Art and I immediately "fall in love" with his work, and started admiring him. Caravaggio was considered an "enigmatic, fascinating and dangerous" man. Qualities that define himself and his works. He spent his time tidying up confusion through the streets with the locals and even the police itself.
His works are very realistic and dramatic. All thanks to the strong contrast of light and dark that he use. His works were very expressive and shocking! So shocking and expressive that almost pulled the viewer into the painting. Caravaggio unlike many painters as high, defying the laws of the "right" in the representations. Their representations were made with holy figures common on the streets of Rome. Ordinary people such as prostitutes, fishermen and farmers.
Caravaggio is one of my favorite artists without a doubt. His whole story is fascinating. The fact that he was considered a psychopath, a killer and at the same time a "king" of painting, a young talented, innovative and mysterious. It`s amazing the quality of this genius.
