Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio- had an adventurous life, a tragic end, was unmistakable in his art and created a break in the painting of the Counter-Reformation. There was a painting before Caravaggio and there was a painting after Caravaggio. Even without visiting the many museums and galleries, where the significant images of the painter in Rome hang, you get an idea of this extraordinary painter only by visiting the churches in the city.
