Happy Easter!

A bit of Art History for everyone, love me some Caravaggio. Aside from being one of the most gifted painters to ever push paint brush, Caravaggio rejected earlier notions of depicting religious figures as idealized representatives of the perfected human form. Instead, he used models chosen from everyday life,  thus injecting a sense of realism that became a hallmark of European painting for centuries to come.
