Notorious bad boy of the Italian Baroque, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) was at once celebrated, controversial, violent in temper, precise in technique, a creative master and a man on the run.
This book brings together more than 50 of Caravaggio’s most famous and revolutionary works to explore how and why this artist is now considered the most important painter of the early Baroque period, as well as one of the defining influences of art history.
