    True or False: this Baroque painter named Caravaggio was a convicted murderer:       +Media True Correct Answer +Media False Correct Answer   Do not include this question in random selection. - Feedback/Explanation + MediaTrue: He killed a man in a pub brawl and was banished from Rome. Later when he cut a deal with the Pope to return to Rome, he died of malaria in the swamps walking back from Naples. More on the painting: Caravagio had a way of bringing religion and peagan gods down to earth in a real world way. In this is a painting of the conversion of Saul from the bible, the drama is internalized within the mind of Saul. He lies on the ground stunned, his eyes closed as if dazzled by the brightness of God's light that streams down the white part of the skewbald horse, but that the light is heavenly is clear only to the believer, for Saul has no halo.

    True or False: This painting by the Italian Baroque artist Caravaggio was rejected by the Catholic Church, whom commisioned it, based on the fact it showed a dead Virgin Mary in an unflattering way.   +Media True Correct Answer +Media False Correct Answer   Do not include this question in random selection. - Feedback/Explanation + MediaTrue: The Dead of the Virgin by Caravaggio 1501-1606 was rejected by the Church. The depiction of the Death of the Virgin caused a contemporary stir, and was rejected as unfit by the parish who commissioned it. Caravaggio didn’t make a representation of death, but a real death. The painting offends the sensibility not only of its own time, but of all times, because it is believed that the Virgin Mary didn't "die" but rather "ascended into heaven". To make matter even worse: Contemporaries accused Caravaggio of modeling the Virgin Mary after a corpse of a dead prostitute well known in the community. Even more strange: Caravaggio was also a convicted murderer! This painting was rejected but Caravaggio is still regarded as one of the most important Baroque painters of all time.
