Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571‒1610) was an Italian painter and formative influence of the 17th-century Baroque art movement. His dramatic oil paintings depict scenes where light and darkness intersect, and mainly feature religious themes and violent imagery. His realistic depictions of such episodes garnered him many followers. Contrary to his acclaimed legacy, however, he led a tumultuous and controversial life. Ten of his surviving works (including attributed works)—of which there are considered to be about 60—will be featured, as well as the Caravaggesque works of painters influenced by him. Some are being shown in Japan for the first time.
