Abstract:

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.
