Trained in Milan under a master who had himself trained under Titian, Caravaggio moved to Rome in his early 20s. Huge new churches and palazzi were being built in Rome in the decades of the late 16th and early 17th Centuries, and paintings were needed to fill them. That is how the career of this great man began. The artist, who experienced an early fame was known as a notorious drinker and bar brawler. His death was unexpected for most of the so-called higher society members. Caravaggio was wounded in a fight in a tavern in Naples and died of a fever in July 1610. However, there is still wide debate on the real cause of his death.
