Dramatic shifts from foreboding dark to probing light; a realism that exposes all the flaws and folds of human flesh; a surgical explication of almost unbearably tense emotion; and the poised depiction of crucial moments at the very lip of their unfolding: these were among the innovations of Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio.
During Caravaggio’s lifetime his work was enormously influential and controversial. Each of his innovations in some way upset the prevailing tendencies of the day. Nonetheless, Caravaggio was never short of commissions or patrons, and left to posterity around 80 masterpieces.
