Caravaggio, Calling of St. Matthew, 1600

Things to think about when studying:

  • How does Caravaggio use light to help the narrative?
  • Where is the scene set? Is it similar or different than other religious paintings during this time?
  • What types of figures did Caravaggio like to include in this paintings?
