Caravaggio: Master of Darkness

The artist who invented Modernism... or, at least, the Modern World’s idea of the Artist as Outsider. Violent and unpredictable, prodigiously gifted and yet mercurial, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio provides all we need in an artist, sending us back picture-postcards of Hell for our dubious enjoyment. One of the great originals in all of art, Caravaggio invented a particular variety of Baroque, a dramatic, extreme and photographic art which instantly outraged and beguiled his patrons, followers and rivals alike. It is no exaggeration to say that this artist transformed European painting, with imitators throughout Italy (especially in Rome, in Naples and in Sicily), in France, in Spain, and a particularly inspired and influential school in Utrecht. We look at all of this, of course, and at the artists of today who still draw inspiration, and stylistic notes, from the Master.
