POLIDORO DA CARAVAGGIO   (b. ca. 1497, Caravaggio, d. 1543, Messina) Nationality : Italian

Italian painter and draughtsman, originally Polidoro Caldara. His surname, Caravaggio, came from his birthplace. He moved from Lombardy to Rome and soon joined Raphael's workshop, which was then occupied with the frescoes in the Vatican Palace. He was responsible for some of the monochrome decorations in the Vatican Stanze as well as for the Loggetta of Cardinal Bernardo Bibbiena. He began working with Giulio Romano and Perino del Vaga on the frescoes in the Vatican Logge of Leo X, where he can be credited with the scenes of Joseph Sold by his Brothers and the Crossing of the Jordan. He formed a close friendship with Perino and with the Spanish painter Pedro Machuca.
