Michelangelo Merisi, “Caravaggio” (1571, Caravaggio (Bg)-1610, Port’Ercole - Gr)
About the Museum
This painting dates from the first Caravaggio period in Rome. The canvas is painted with a strong realism that gives the still-life the same importance as the figure. The Lombard, Venetian, and Flemish influences do not prevent the painting from representing a new artistic expression.
