Caravaggio lived in the time of Shakespeare and the counter reformation. The most memorable feature of his painting is his lighting that even today inspire modern film directors.


Caravaggio was a rebel, painted a known prostitute as the model for the Vergin Mary and raised scandal. Every one of his work raised scandal. His legacy is split, with some artists admiring him while others (like Posussin) disliking him. Caravaggio was forgotten until the late 19th century when he was rediscovered by art historians.

He might have used lenses and mirrors as helper but never wanted to admit it.

Once

" he refused to produce altarpieces in frescoes in 1600s. When commissioned to produce altarpieces in Cerasi Chapel; he suggested painting at his studio; and not in situ; reasoning that he did not wish to disturb the faithful with scaffolding.
Indeed he may have been respectful after all; or perhaps he may simply have wished not to be seen painting effortlessly; or perhaps he used optical aids that he did not wish to make public."

"Ribera; Vermeer; Georges de La Tour and Rembrandt could never have existed without him; And Delacroix; Courbet and Manet would have been utterly different"
Roberto Longhi (art historian)
