He was in and out of prison seven times for assault and was eventually murdered. Nevertheless, everyone supported him, and he was one of the most beloved painters in Rome in the 17th century.
If you follow the Louvre’s Great Gallery, you can see the ‘battle between David and Goliath’, and the ‘Death of the Virgin’, which depicts the death of the Virgin Mary, modeled on the body of a prostitute who fell into the river. Introducing the world of Caravaggio’s work, which was most violent but most loved.
