Caravaggio: Masters of Art (PB)
This generously illustrated volume on the work of Caravaggio makes the world’s greatest art accessible to readers of every level of appreciation.
This monograph explores Caravaggio’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 colorful, 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.
