I don't know how Marie Kondo does it...whenever I'm throwing away old books and notes it feels like I'm throwing away years of learning and acquired knowledge. Especially as I glance over them and can't recollect anything I learned. #apchem #apphysics #aparthistory #etc #sadtruth

Caravaggio, The Calling of Saint Matthew, 1599. Caravaggio was a Baroque Italian painter of great renown. Caravaggio was active primarily in Rome, but also spent part of his career in Naples, Sicily, and Malta. Caravaggio was trained in Milan with Simone Peterzano, a student of Titian. Caravaggio is known for his dramatic paintings, and use of intense chiaroscuro. The Calling of Saint Matthew was and has remained extremely popular painting, and Caravaggio gained a great deal of fame and recognition within the Roman art market soon after it was displayed. The painting hangs in the Contarelli Chapel in the church of San Luigi dei Francesi in Rome. The painting is displayed alongside The Inspiration of Saint Matthew and The Martyrdom of Saint Matthew, two paintings also by Caravaggio. The painting depicts the moment that Christ asks Matthew to become one of his disciples. Matthew, the bearded man sitting third to the left, is sitting with his fellow tax collectors. Christ and Saint Peter, half obscured in the darkness stand on the right side of the painting. Christ gestures to Saint Matthew, who points at himself almost in disbelieve that Christ is asking him to "follow me". The moment Caravaggio chose to paint is one of conversion and spiritual awakening. Matthew and in the next one of the figures who would shape Christianity as we know it. Not only is Matthew a tax collector, but the environment he is working in is much different than the image one typically associates with purity or deity or Christ. In contrast to the elegant, classicized spaces we are accustomed to seeing Christ and saints in, this room is small and musky. Building this type of setting was very important to Caravaggio's movement. He was the first to put normal looking people and normal looking settings in a religious context. #Art #ArtHistory #BaroquePainting #Caravaggio #APArtHistory
