Caravaggio (Image and Video - techniques)

Caravaggio described here on Wikipedia was a 17th century narrative painter who used subjects of his own time in his visual stories. The strong lid and shade format of his paintings also make them great subjects of study for academic painting students.

My personal favorite is this painting of the taking of Christ which I'd like to copy/reproduce someday when I have the time.
