Caravaggio Episode, 21 August 2007
Author: IzAguirreWrathofGod from United Kingdom

The CARAVAGGIO episode was an outstanding 'Opener' to this DVD.

The acting and settings were both excitingly evocative and convincing. I was especially impressed with the way the sets were lit. Exactly as Caravaggio would have painted them. Darkly, with what light there was,coming from odd angles.

I thought Schama managed to pose the question. 'How do you reconcile how this man led his life, with his deeply religious paintings ' expertly, but have two complaints.

Caravaggio was known to have had several "Guardian Angels" who protected him for much of his life but they were not discussed in any detail in the episode. This would have added intrigue to an already highly mysterious subject. and I was surprised that Schama has either ignored or never heard of Peter Robb's enthralling biography, of Caravaggio, called 'M'

Mr Robb argued strongly, against the accepted version of the circumstances of Caravaggio's demise and convincingly suggested his death was a case of murder, arranged by powerful forces, to whom the painter had become an unacceptable embarrassment.
