Caravaggio : Masters of Art, Paperback / softback Book

Caravaggio : Masters of Art Paperback / softback

Part of the Masters of Art series

Paperback / softback

Description

Although fewer than eighty of Caravaggio's painted works exist, they represent a critical moment in the development of European painting as the Renaissance style gave way to that of the Baroque.

This monograph explores the Italian master's entire life and career by focusing on the most important of his works.

Readers will learn about his innovative use of light and shadow, his physical and psychological realism, and his radical technique of omitting initial drawings and creating straight onto the canvas.

Along the way readers will learn details of the artist's colourful, and often troubled life, as well as the important role he played in the evolution of Western painting.

Overflowing with impeccably reproduced images, this book offers full-page spreads of masterpieces as well as highlights of smaller details - allowing the viewer to appreciate every aspect of the artist's technique and oeuvre.

Chronologically arranged, the book covers important biographical and historic events that reflect the latest scholarship.

Additional information includes a list of works, timeline, and suggestions for further reading.
