Michelangelo Merisi, called Caravaggio, was a prolific and important painter of the early Baroque period in Italy. During his lifetime he was equally well-known for his art, as he was notorious for his violent temper, which frequently landed him in trouble and forced him to travel (flee, to be specific) constantly. Few artists in history have exercised as extraordinary an influence as this tempestuous and short-lived painter. Caravaggio was instrumental in establishing the tenets of the Baroque movement, moving European art away from the idealized viewpoint of the Renaissance to a more quotidien aesthetic of beauty.
