Book Description: The painting of Michelangelo Merisi called Caravaggio (1571-1610) had such a vast influence that, according to modern scholars, it constituted an "epochal turning point" not only in Italian but also European art. This volume recounts the master's life through lights and shadows, masterpieces and scandals, presenting the paintings that scholars have unanimously acknowledged to be autograph works on the basis of documentary evidence that has emerged in recent years. It analyzes his revolutionary painting skills at a technical and creative level, and depicts a remarkably alive and realistic picture of Caravaggio the "man" and his journey: the move from Lombardy to Rome, followed by his dramatic flight to Naples, Malta, Sicily, and back to Naples again, ending with his tragic death. -- From publisher's description.
