Michelangelo Merisi was born in 1573 in Caravaggio, a town in the province of Bergamo. Under the main name Caravaggio he is known in the art. His life has not always been steady, and sources have reported that he committed excesses that brought him into conflict with the law. He fled several times and could, however, come under the protection of Order members of the Church and the Maltese Order.

Caravaggio studied painting in Milan and in Venice. His creativity was tireless, and so he quickly enjoyed the intercession of his clients, who praised him for his clarity, naturalism, and lovingly crafted details, notably an art dealer Valentin, who established relationships with wealthy collectors, including various cardinals. As early as 1589, at the age of 16, the elites were so surprised by his self-confidence and the certainty of his artistic expressiveness that only painters would otherwise become part of the middle or end of their painting career. In the 1600s he enjoyed widespread recognition, but his self-inflicted events threatened his artistic development and led him straight to ruin.

In 1605 he had to flee from Rome to Genoa, the year after he fled again from the access of the judiciary to Naples. There he became active for the Grand Master of the Order of Malta, but again came into disputes with the dignitaries. During his travels, new works of incomparable beauty were created for churches and monasteries, although Caravaggio was always driven. Three years before his death, a picture of Christ emerged, as well as one with Mary, the Child, and St. Anna, both images that exerted an intense influence on the work of many artists of this and subsequent generations. Caravaggio had partially scratched the prevailing beauty ideals with the image of Mary, because he painted honest facts, such as the trampling of a snake as a symbol of evil in the two-by-three-meter image in detail.

For example, painters such as Peter Paul Rubens from the Netherlands and other artists from Verona, Genoa, Piedmont and Tuscany were so taken with his style of painting that they followed his example. In particular, the simplicity and the representation of light and shadow were often template and the artists tried to use these techniques as in Caravaggio. Caravaggio is thus considered a pioneer of the development of Baroque painting. © Meisterdrucke
