Caravaggio by Catherine R Puglisi( Book )
24 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,015 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 )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 610 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 501 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 : a life by Helen Langdon( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 215 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

Caravaggio by Christopher Peachment( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 35 libraries worldwide
Peachment's imagined Caravaggio, while still a child, overhears his parents discussing one of his sketches, and relizes he has a talent that sets him apart from the world. He leaves family and home forever to map out a solitary traveler's life. Caravaggio became a revolutionary of his time, a rebellious and dangerous man to know, a man governed by his genius, his indiscriminate sexual appetite, and his murderous rage. He was sought far and wide in the late Renaissance world for his art, and there wa a price on his head for at least one murder. This is Caravaggio's confession, told in humorous, blasphemous, often brutal prose, which cleverly beguiles the reader into understanding the art that was so celebrated and the life that caused so much outrage
