Caravaggio, The Artist Who Died For His Art

History Documentaries

You’ve seen Caravaggio’s stunning paintings, but do you know the story behind the images? Caravaggio was a violent and tragic figure who likely died because of his commitment to his art. He became “the most famous painter in Rome” in 1600 and gave birth to the Baroque style and the technique of chiaroscuro, but when he wasn’t painting, Caravaggio surrounded himself with thieves, prostitutes, and fights.
