The Calling of St Matthew: Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio

Caravaggio is my favorite painter because of his ability to use lighting to emphasize certain areas of his paintings. I like that in this painting he uses foreground lighting to emphasize not Jesus nor Peter, but Matthew, who I feel was the major story in this scene. I also like how there are many interest points in this picture, not just Jesus and Peter.
