7 ~Lake Oswego Art Literacy~ Caravaggio 1571 – 1610 Italian Baroque Painter Caravaggio’s Mature Period From 1597 onward, Caravaggio turned almost exclusively to religious subjects. He introduced violent gestures and physical movement to intensify the emotionalism of the spiritual event. In the foreground, radically foreshortened figures project out from the picture plane, compelling the viewer to become a participant. From 1600 until his death, most of his works exhibit the following characteristics: Dramatic light in a darkened setting causing sharp contrasts of light and dark, which heightened the drama and increased the feeling of three-dimensionality. The light source was often out of view on the left. Insistence on realism when depicting characters. They reacted to situations in realistic ways, suffering real emotions, even if they were saints. Not idealized. The scenes were suspended moments in time. He painted a brief break before the action continued to show the emotions in the characters’ faces and actions. The settings are minimal, with only a few details to convey the scene. The space is usually shallow and the figures are positioned in the foreground, often seeming to emerge out into the viewer’s space through foreshortening. Compositions were based on intertwining diagonal lines.
