The Calling of St Matthew, Rome August 2011

CallingOfStMatthewSanLuigideiFrancesiRome11.jpgI have been away for the last few weeks visiting Lazio and Umbria. During my travels I made a special trip to see one of my favourite paintings. The Calling of St Matthew, by Caravaggio hangs in the San Luigi dei Francesi church in Rome. Having seen it in magazines and books for so many years and then to see it in all it's glory was truly wonderful. Caravaggio's use of light and drama is awe-inspiring. Three of his paintings sit together; The Calling of Saint Matthew is the one on the left.
