Summary
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived the darkest and dangerous life of any of the great painters. In the course of this life, Caravaggio created the most dramatic paintings of his age, using ordinary men and women to model for his depictions of classic religious scenes. This book shows how he created their drama, immediacy and humanity
Summary
A British art critic and historian describes the painter's artistic achievements and volatile life during the Counter-Reformation in Italy which included public brawls, murder, sexual escapades, and imprisonment in Malta
