Caravaggio 2012 Wall Calendar
Caravaggio Wall Calendar: Caravaggio was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta and Sicily between 1593 and 1610. He was the first great representative of the Baroque school of painting, noted for his intensely emotional canvases and dramatic use of lighting. Even in his own lifetime Caravaggio was considered enigmatic, fascinating, rebellious and dangerous. He burst upon the Rome art scene in 1600, and thereafter never lacked for commissions or patrons. Although he handled his success poorly and died at a young age he left an important body of work that established him as an important figure in the history of art.
