Caravaggio 1573: Caravaggio
28.9.1573: Caravaggio (†18.7.1610)
The revolutionary Italian painter’s completely new style, which he developed before Velázquez and Rembrandt, had a formative influence on Baroque painting. In contrast to the mannerism style, he developed his own objective and naturalistic style with reduced perspectives, extreme lighting effects and natural observations. This led him to become Italy’s greatest naturalist around 1600.
