Caravaggio by Catherine R Puglisi( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caravaggio was the most innovative painter of his time, and one of the greatest artists of any age. Controversial in his own lifetime, and notorious for his arrogance and violent character, he lived the last four years of his life in exile after committing murder. Yet he was always protected by influential patrons who admired the bold realism and originality of his art." "Recent archival research and historical investigations have produced much new information about Caravaggio and the culture and politics of his time, while cleaning, technical investigation and new discoveries have literally shed new light on the paintings. Making full use of all this material, Catherine Puglisi has produced a comprehensive monograph that supersedes all previous studies of the artist. All Caravaggio's works are discussed and illustrated in colour and full use is made of the latest documentation to present a lively and compelling portrait of the artist."--Jacket
Caravaggio by Giorgio Bonsanti( Book )

22 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caravaggio was born Michelangelo Merisi in 1570 or 1571, in Caravaggio in Lombardy, and moved to Rome in 1592, when he was in his 20s. His earliest influences were Lombard art, a style which has been noted for its realism. The relation between objects and natural and artificial light, which is an important feature of Caravaggio's work, was assimilated from this local tradition. The author examines the life and work of this innovative artist, including the Supper in Emmaus and the Beheading of the Baptist."--Amazon

Caravaggio & his followers in Rome by David Franklin( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Italian artist Caravaggio (1571-1610) had a profound impact on a wide range of baroque painters of Italian, French, Dutch, Flemish, and Spanish origin who resided in Rome either during his lifetime or immediately afterward. This captivating book illustrates the notion of "Caravaggism," showcasing 65 works by Peter Paul Rubens and other important artists of the period who drew inspiration from Caravaggio. Also depicted are Caravaggio canvases that fully exhibit his distinctive style, along with ones that had a particularly discernible impact on other practitioners. Caravaggio's influence was greatest in Rome, where his works were seen by the largest and most international group of artists, and was at its peak in the early decades of the 17th century both before and after his untimely death at the age of 39. Not since Michelangelo or Raphael has one European artist affected so many of his contemporaries and over such broad geographic territory. Essays by an array of major Caravaggio scholars illuminate the underlying principles of the exhibit, reveal how Caravaggio altered the presentation and interpretation of many traditional subjects and inspired unusual new ones, and explore the artist's legacy and how he irrevocably changed the course of painting."--Publisher's description

Caravaggio and his two cardinals by Creighton Gilbert( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its intellectual approach, Caravaggio and His Two Cardinals is a series of extended essays on diverse topics that involve the politics of Counter-Reformation religion and propaganda; neo-Latin poetry; the social status of homosexuality in the period; dialect speech; and inheritance patterns of works of art in families. Gilbert's thoughtful insights on the theory of a homoerotic aspect in Caravaggio's work alone should provoke spirited scholarly discussion

Caravaggio : realism, rebellion, reception by Genevieve Warwick( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume considers Caravaggio's revolutionary "realism" from a range of perspectives by a plurality of leading scholars. First, it advances our understanding of Caravaggio's relationship with the "new" science of observation championed by Galileo. Second, it examines afresh the theoretical nature of Caravaggio's seemingly direct "realism." Third, it extends the horizons of research on Caravaggio's complex intellectual and social milieu between high and low cultures. Fourth, it redefines our understanding of the relationship between Caravaggio's life and his art in historical terms."--BOOK JACKET

Caravaggio by Vittorio Sgarbi( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in Italian and English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume the Italian leading art historian Vittorio Sgarbi outlines his personal rereading of the trajectories and innovations of Caravaggio's artistic language through a critical re-examination of all the master's known works and undisputed masterpieces. In addition to the introductory essay - in which the author revisits critical questions regarding the young Lombard Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio's formation, apprenticeship with the Milanese painter Simone Peterzano, departure for Rome, the beginning of the great fortune he found among Roman cardinals and nobles, and his tragic death at Porto Ercole - the volume is enriched by a sumptuous series of catalogue entries examining each single work, in which the historical and critical analyses mine all the latest specialized texts and documentary discoveries for new information. This volume is meant to be a useful and meaningful tool with which the public can approach the works of one of the greatest artists of the Italian baroque period; at the same time it is a reference text and an intelligent synthesis of Caravaggesque issues and criticism for both students and scholars of Italian art history
Caravaggio : a life by Helen Langdon( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the great Italian painters, Caravaggio speaks most clearly and powerfully to our time. Caravaggio's early paintings of cardsharps, musicians, and street vendors convey his familiarity and fascination with the Roman underworld; his stark and brilliant religious paintings represent, for the first time in European art, the world of the poor, the suffering, and the outcast, and they depict the religious experience of the individual with a directness our age can recognize." "Caravaggio lived hard and died young, having fled Rome for Sicily, apparently after killing another man in a dispute; his life, involving powerful patrons, sybaritic cardinals, and saints, as well as street boys, prostitutes, and rivalrous painters, is one of the most colorful of any artist's. This biography - the first in English in two generations - shows us Caravaggio's genius with the striking clarity of his own paintings."--Jacket
