If you’re going to puylisi one book on Caravaggio Not every book gives you insight like “Dedicating himself to his art, Caravaggio would shut himself up for feverish spurts of activity The book perhaps Caracaggio you’re going to get one book on Caravaggio The book perhaps sums up caarvaggio artist best as, “Devoid of the distancing patina of age, his paintings address the modern viewer with uncommon directness.

You see Caravaggio’s take and you wonder why the rest of them have the volume turned down. Chiaroscuro and tenebrism rocked the art world and the book vividly depicts his creation and evolution of these devices.

And besides, I can’t think of a lot of artists of yore with the chutzpah to pictorally sign their name in the spilling blood of a beheaded saint. Jul 16, Ava rated it really liked it.
Beautiful and complete reproductions. Interesting and previously unexplored scholarship. For meditation purposes on his work, this would be the book to own. This has resulted in a renewed appreciation of his work along with a revived curiosity about his life. I believe it was a golden hand that happened to create the most psychologically and aesthetically arresting examples of Christian and Catholic artwork.
Perhaps we do the message of his work an injustice with so sharp a divide between what we think we know about Caravaggio and his faith with the product of his talent? Jan 20, David rated it really liked it Shelves: Probably the best book I’ve found in terms of representation quality. Beautiful prints of Caravaggio’s work. The writing is alright.
