After a fortnight's work [Caravaggio] will swagger about for a month or two with a sword at his side and a servant following him from one ball court to the next ever ready to engage in a fight or argument, so that it is most awkward to get along with him. . . . Despite this his painting is beyond dispute.

—Karel van Mander, Het Schilderboek, 1603-16041(p27)
