Caravaggio Paperback / softback
Part of the Art Dossier Series series
This is a magnificently illustrated and informative introduction to the life and works of Italian Master painter Caravaggio.
This magnificently illustrated series of monographs explore the lives and works of some of the most famous, influential, and talented artists throughout history.
Each volume features a number of insightful essays by leading experts, a comprehensive chronology - set in an historical and artistic context, and a bibliography for ideas on further reading.
This volume focuses on the work of Italian artist Caravaggio (1571-1610) whose innovative use of the chiaroscuro technique and intense emotional realism - along with his notorious antics outside the studio - made him a household name among collectors during his lifetime.
However, Caravaggio was almost ignored after his death, and it was only during the 20th century that critics rediscovered his work and realised the profound influence he had on the Baroque style.
