An artwork by the Italian artist Caravaggio.

Caravaggio - Death of the Virgin 1606 - The model Caravaggio used for central figure of the virgin was actually a dead prostitute dragged up from Rome's river Tiber.

Caravaggio, Saint Catherine of Alexandria, 1598, the light is so delicate in paintings by Caravaggio. The way he could paint was in strong contrast with how he lived his life.
