  Caravaggio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (Caravaggio, September 29, 1573 - Porto Ercole, Italy, July 18, 1610), named after his hometown near Milan, was an Italian Baroque painter, whose large religious works portrayed saints and other biblical figures as ordinary people.
Caravaggio was son of Fermo Merisi (architect of Francesco Sforza) and Lucia Aratori.
His tenebrism of darkened backgrounds and the incisively real, yet plebeian inhabitants of Caravaggio's canvases were a revolutionary departure from the sunlit frescoes of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel roof or the contemporary Carracci fresco cycles.

Michelangelo Merisi was born on 29 September 1571 probably in Caravaggio, the son of Fermo Merisi aned Lucia Aratori.
Merisi probably arrived in Rome where he had an uncle, Ludovico, who was in the priesthood in the second half of 1592.
According to Bellori, a biographer who wrote in the 17th century, many years after Merisi's death, he painted flowers and fruit, but it is not known whether as still-lifes on their own or as details of sacred or profane paintings.

 glbtq >> arts >> Michelangelo Buonarroti
Leonardo may have invented the genre, but Michelangelo used it to celebrate his relationships with Vittoria Colonna and Tomaso de' Cavalieri, the only two people for whom he is documented as having created a unique work of art as a token of personal esteem.
In these poems one can detect Michelangelo's painful wrestling with his conclusion that the means of earthly love open to him could not provide the immanent metaphor of heavenly love that the comforts of marriage bring to most men and women.
Of these, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is most obvious; and others, such as Michelangelo's contemporary Cellini, make it clear that there has always been a current of opinion that Michelangelo's sexual nature was oriented towards other men.

 October Feature: The Other Michelangelo
Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), called Caravaggio, is the second Michelangelo, born a few years after the death of Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), sculptor of the Pietà and painter of the Sistine Chapel.
The High Renaissance achievements of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, based as they were on intense competition among gigantic egos and stupendous talents, reached such a peak that further serious art seemed impossible.
Michelangelo Buonarroti's The Conversion of St. Paul (Saul) and The Crucifixion of St. Peter are works that were much too terrible for their century and for any century but our own (they are still off limits to visitors to the Vatican).

Michelangelo Merisi himself was something of a roguish, mysterious man, and his life proves to be almost as interesting as the paintings themselves.
Spike here gives a fairly complete biography of Merisi who was called "Caravaggio" because he came from that small Italian town.
After all, there was another Michelangelo already famous during Caravaggio's lifetime so another name was needed for him.

 Caravaggio Biography
He may have spent four years as apprentice to Simone Peterzano in Milan before going to Rome in 1593, where he entered the employ of the Mannerist painter Giuseppe Cesari, also known as the Cavaliere d'Arpino, for whom he executed fruit and flower pieces (now lost).
Although the use of both realistic types and strong chiaroscuro originated in northern Italian art of the previous century, Caravaggio brought new life and immediacy to these aspects of painting, with which he effected a transformation of anticlassical Mannerism in early baroque Rome.
Despite his personal protestations that nature was his only teacher, Caravaggio obviously studied and assimilated the styles of the High Renaissance masters, especially that of Michelangelo.

The Ronnie Biggs of the Baroque and cheeky chappy of chiaroscuro, Michelangelo Merisi, was born at Caravaggio near Milan but decided to rename himself after his home village for PR and image reasons.
After being orphaned aged 11 (he lived in careless times!) he was apprenticed to a Milanese artist but took a walk down a road, which surprisingly led to Rome.
Finally, just as he was on the point of returning to Rome and a pardon, the (short-sighted?) boatman supposed to be ferrying him there took only his clothes, leaving Caravaggio on the beach and feeling so cheesed off by fate and malaria that he collapsed and died.
