"Questa volta mi occuperà del Caravaggio. Finora, sia me ne mancasse l'agio, sia la mia curiosità non fosse stimolata abbastanza, o forse per la combinazione delle due cause, non mi sono mai dato la pena di entrare in dimestichezza col Caravaggio. Comincerò con l'esaminare le opere superstiti del nostro pittore. Fino a pochi decenni or sono, la sua personalità di artista era nebulosa come quella di un Leonardo o di un Giorgione prima degli studi morelliani. Qualsiasi tela presentasse, in forti contrasti di luce, volgari e obesi giganti sacrilegamente atteggiati a Cristo o ad apostoli, figure con piumacci, baraonde di uomini e di donne dall'aspetto vizioso e alticcio, giovinastri occupati a giocare ai dadi o a barare alle carte, o più dignitose scene di concerti, veniva senz'altro attribuita a lui. Non così oggi. Il Caravaggio ha cessato d'essere una categoria o una specie, e ha riacquistato una personalità artistica definita quanto quella di Leonardo, o almeno quanto quella di Giorgione. Studierò soltanto i quadri che gli appartengono in modo indiscusso, secondo il giudizio dei più competenti. Intorno a essi mi lascerò andare a dire qualunque cosa mi passi per la testa, una testa che ha meditato per molti anni sull'arte, dal punto di vista estetico, storico, morale. E, infine, mi prenderò la libertà di esprimere quanti pensieri l'esame dell'opera caravaggesca mi ha suggerito."
