Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was born on September 28, 1573 in the town of Caravaggio, near Milan.  He was trained in a Lombard tradition long grown stale. On the death of his father, a steward and perhaps architect for a local nobleman, he was apprenticed for a period of four years to Simone Paterzano, a mediocre Milanese painter who had studied with Titian. He left Milan for Rome around 1592.

In the 1590s, when Caravaggio first settled in Rome, art had descende (showing 500 of 2939 characters).
