In the Footsteps of Caravaggio
|The Calling of St. Matthew, Caravaggio, San Luigi de' Francesi|
If you follow this blog, you know that the art of Caravaggio is one my greatest passions. I proudly call myself a "Caravaggio-chaser," as it is my goal to see every work of art he has ever painted (or at least, those that are known to be in existence). I have traveled to Malta, Siracusa, Messina, Naples, Cremona, Milan, and France, just to see works by this genius of chiaroscuro, and I have read numerous books on his fascinating life and art. It was in Rome that Caravaggio spent the bulk of his productive years, and more of his works are here than in any other city. Rome is also the only place in the world where you can see six (6!) of his paintings in various churches, absolutely free!
|The Martyrdom of St. Peter, S Maria del Popolo|
|Madonna of Loreto, Sant'Agostino|
