Caravaggio [1571-1610]Unknown - 1989
In 1599, Caravaggio was hired to paint the two side walls of the Church of San Luigi dei Frances. In The Calling of St. Matthew, seven men are in a dimly-lit room without depth - a scene from the Gospels in modern dress. The Martyrdom of St. Matthew depicts St. Matthew lying before the executioner. After completing the first two works, he was commissioned to paint a third. Learn about Caravaggio's history, influences, technique, and changes he implemented.
