Born in 1571 and dead before he was 40, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is considered one of the great Italian masters. He developed a revolutionary painting style, easily recognizable for its unprecedented realism and approachability. Here, nine thematic chapters, including still lifes, the five senses, arms and armor, severed heads, and gestures, offer new insights into the work of this brilliant, enigmatic Italian painter and astonishing close-up views of his most popular paintings, including Bacchus, Medusa, David and Goliath, Judith and Holofernes, and The Fortune Teller.
Caravaggio in Detail is the newest volume in the successful series that includes Bruegel in Detail and Bosch in Detail.
