Caravaggio : a life by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio ( Book )
159 editions published between 1928 and 2011 in 11 languages and held by 5,774 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 & his followers in Rome by David Franklin ( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 574 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 : the art of realism by John L Varriano ( Book )

Caravaggio and his two cardinals by Creighton Gilbert ( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study focuses on three paintings done by Caravaggio for the two Mattei brothers - a cardinal and a marquis who shared the family palace and, for a time, had Caravaggio as a house guest. The Mattei family has been given short shrift in the literature about Caravaggio, which otherwise has rightly devoted great attention to his patrons. This context enriches our understanding of the paintings - the "Pastor Friso," often dubiously said to represent John the Baptist, the Supper at Emmaus in the London National Gallery, and the newly rediscovered Kiss of Judas in Dublin - then implicates wider contexts, including a comparative study of the artist's most famous works, the Matthew cycle in the Contarelli chapel, and his other patrons, specifically Cardinal Del Monte. An examination of these relationships allows valuable insight into the question of Caravaggio's "naturalist style," his peers, and his period

Caravaggio : Sehen, Staunen, Glauben : der Maler und sein Werk by S Ebert-Schifferer ( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Um 1600 erregte der junge Caravaggio (1571-1610) in Rom durch seine neuartigen Bilder großes Aufsehen. Sie stachen hervor durch ihre unerhörte psychologische Authentizität, ihre kühne Naturnähe und ihre geistreichen Einfälle. Seine Kunst trug Caravaggio Wohlstand und sozialen Aufstieg ein, sein Lebenswandel brachte ihn immer häufiger mit dem Recht in Konflikt. Sybille Ebert-Schifferer zeichnet in ihrem großzügig illustrierten Band ein bewegtes, vielseitiges Bild von Leben und Werk des Künstlers. Dabei stellt sie zahlreiche Klischees in Frage, welche das Urteil über Caravaggio von Anfang an geprägt haben. Indem sie ihn in den Kontext seiner Zeit stellt, macht sie einen anderen Caravaggio sichtbar, der sich als nicht weniger schillernd und fesselnd erweist. Anders als immer wieder behauptet, mangelte es dem Maler weder an Bildung noch an Frömmigkeit, und er war technisch höchst versiert
Caravaggio's eye by Clovis Whitfield ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book concentrates on a few crucial years of Caravaggio's development, in order to cast light on what made the artist such a revolutionary figure. It argues that this revolution was one of technique rather than style, and involved the sophisticated use of a camera obscura and so-called 'burning' or parabolic mirrors, exploiting new advances in glassmaking and optics. Because the results Caravaggio obtained by his new methods were so different he created a sensation, although these innovations were rapidly assimilated and the artistic establishment worked successfully to restore their way of doing things, so that the true novelty of his art in the 1590s has been obscured. Clovis Whitfield uses a lifetime of study of the period to discuss not only Caravaggio's technology but also his patronage and cultural context, the Rome of Clement VIII, concentrating particularly on Caravaggio's homosexual patron Cardinal Francesco Maria Del Monte and analysing the taste and role of his other early supporters as well. Whitfield's Caravaggio was the son of a bricklayer, untrained in traditional artistic disciplines, who instead took the dramatic step of painting exactly what he saw with his reproductive aids. Galileo's hypothesis drawn from observation and Caravaggio's novel description of what he saw were, according to Whitfield, parallel attempts to explain features of the many-layered reality that surrounds us."--Publisher description
