Some links to end with Baroque art

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio

If you like to learn about the hidden side of History, here you have an interesting link about Caravaggio´s life. This Baroque Italian painter was a brilliant artist, but had a very controversial personality. He killed a man on a fight, spent some time in jail and earned his living as a pimp (exploiting  prostitutes). If you want to read more about him, click on the link below: 

And this link includes Velázquez´s biography and his complete works (244 paintings)
