Cecco del Caravaggio is the name used for a Baroque artist working in Rome in the early decades of the 17th century, an important early follower of Caravaggio. None of Cecco’s works are signed or dated and hence his oeuvre is difficult to identify, but he is associated with a number of genre pieces, portraits and religious works showing a clear debt to Caravaggio. His more important religious works include his Resurrection now in the Art Institute of Chicago and his Christ Expelling the Money Changers from the Temple.
