    Michelangelo da Caravaggio is somewhat underknown considering his place in Art History. One of my own top five to ten all-timers. I saw a bunch of his paintings in Amsterdam in the spring of 2006 at a special Rembrandt-Caravaggio exhibit at the Van Gogh Museum. Amazing.

    Good detailed artist review and some nice background on his artistic arc. Two favorite paintings: the disturbing Judith and Holofernes and his Saint Jerome.
