His influence on the new Baroque style, derived from Mannerism is profound. This influence can be seen clearly or indirectly in the paintings of Rubens, Jusepe de Ribera, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and Rembrandt, and also among the next-generation artists. These artists, who were heavily under his influence, are called "Caravaggisti" or "Caravagesques," as well as tenebrists or tenebrosi ("shadowists").
Style has evolved, and fashion has changed, and Caravaggio has fallen into disgrace.
In the 20th century, the interest for his creativity was revived again, and his significance for the development of Western art was revalued.
There is disagreement about the exact size of Caravaggio's work, with the number of his paintings varies from 40 to 80, according to various evaluators. The reason few paintings of Caravaggio have survived is because he preferred to work directly on the canvas. His approach was anathema to the experienced artists of his epoch and because they condemned his refusal to work from pre-painting drawings and to idealize his figures.
