Message: I find the article presenting some of Caravaggio’s masterpieces at very gripping- it is really well written and despite the brevity of the presentation, the descriptions of the paintings “David and the Head of Goliath”, “Denial of St. Peter” and “Martyrdom of St. Ursula” are vivid and appealing. In the summary there is an implication of Caravaggio’s personality, of the ideas he imparted in his art and their effect on his contemporaries. The reproductions are indispensable, of course.

Message: A very interesting reflection on the last pieces of artwork by Caravagio. For me was particularly interesting his manner of including self-portraits in his figural compositions. I believe this article can be quite useful for BG teachers and students and the visual support makes its application even more beneficial. Of course how else could an artist be best presented except through his works:)

Message: I checked this web site on Caravaggio and found it useful. Caravaggio is one of my favourite artist and in general Baroque is very interesting for me as an art teacher. In another project I developed a course on Caravaggio in English and I want to share it with you.
