Caravaggio Das vollständige Werk
Notorious bad boy of Italian painting, Caravaggio is now considered one of the greatest influences in all art history. This neat catalogue raisonné reproduces all of Caravaggio’s paintings as well as a number of dramatic details of his boundary-breaking realism. Five accompanying chapters trace Caravaggio’s artistic daring and his equally dramatic life.
Each of his paintings is reproduced from recent top-quality photography, allowing for a vivid encounter with the artist’s ingenious repertoire of looks and gestures, as well as numerous detail shots of his boundary-breaking naturalism. Five accompanying chapters trace the complete arc of Caravaggio’s career from his first public commissions in Rome through to his growing celebrity status and trace his tempestuous personal life, in which drama loomed as prominently as in his canvases.
