It was not until the middle of the 20th century that Caravaggio, an Italian painter long considered controversial, was rediscovered. An advocate of Realism, this artist of the Counter-Reformation challenged the establishment and returned a sense of humanity to images of the saints. The sensuality he gave them went beyond veneration to create an ambiguous eroticism, which incurred the wrath of the Church. Paradoxical and violent, this painter of shadows illustrated with solemnity his debauched lifestyle and dissolute morals. With his invention of chiaroscuro, he made his blood-soaked impression on the history of art.
Caravaggio, or More Accurately Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, was Always a Name to be Reckoned with. Notorious Bad Boy of Italian Painting, the Artist was at Once Celebrated and Controversial: Violent in Temper, Precise in Technique, a Creative Master, and a man on the Run. This Work Offers a Comprehensive Reassessment of Caravaggio's Entire Oeuvre with a Catalogue Raisonn? of his Works. Each Painting is Reproduced in Large Format, with Recent, high Production Photography Allowing for Dramatic Close-ups with Caravaggio's Ingenious Details of Looks and Gestures. Five Introductory Chapters Analyze Caravaggio's Artistic Career from his Early Struggle to Make a Living, Through his First Public Commissions in Rome, and his Growing Celebrity Status. They Look at his Increasing Daring with Lighting and with a Boundary-Breaking Realism Which Allowed Even Biblical Events to Unfold with an Unprecedented Immediacy Before the Viewer. An Accompanying Artist Chronology Follows Caravaggio's Equally Tumultous Personal Life. This is the Definitive Work About Caravaggio for Generations to Come, to be Delved into and Put on Display, with its Slipcase Neatly Converting into a Book Stand.
