Caravaggio - The Master Painter
1573 - 1610
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Italian painter with great influence both in Italy and abroad.
Caravaggio is particularly renowned for his use of chiaroscuro, a technique that uses light and dark to achieve a 3-D effect. Caravaggio breaks away from the tradition of symmetrical figures and detailed backgrounds. His figures do retain a traditional monumentality.
