Caravaggio: The Complete Works
(1000 items available)
Dramatic shifts from foreboding dark to probing light, with minimal gradation in between; a realism that exposes all the flaws and folds of human flesh; a surgical explication of almost unbearably tense emotion; and the poised depiction of crucial moments at the very lip of their unfolding. This monograph documents Michelangelo Merisi's, known as Caravaggio, complete paintings in high-quality reproductions. Authored by Rossella Vodret, it is the must-have monograph on the artist. Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio, was born in 1571 and made his debut in 1600 with two public commissions on the theme of Saint Matthew. He soon became notorious for his temper, and killed a young man in 1606; two further contretemps in Malta and Naples are recorded—the latter, in 1609, involving an attempt on his life—and by 1610 he was dead, after a brief but extraordinary career.
