Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610)
Born: September 29, 1571; Milan, Italy
Died: July 18, 1610; Porto Ercole, Italy
Art Movement: Baroque
Caravaggio's early education in Lombardy gave him a passion for realism and a dislike of idealization; later, in Rome, he would recover that these were revolutionary concepts. The models chosen for saints and supplicants in his religious pictures were revolutionary concepts. The models chosen for saints and supplicants in his religious pictures were genuine peasants with rags, wrinkles and dirty feet. Not surprisingly, this upset orthodox patrons and members of the public alike, who preferred the contrived elegance of mannerism to Caravaggio's down-to-earth observation.
