    Other reviewers have described Caravaggio s dark side so I won t bother to here I will simply state what I loved about this book and I did love it.Let s start with the book itself It is compact, only 7 by 6 inches long and wide, but a good two inches thick It is a hard back with an enticing dust cover The face of Judith the charming lady who beheaded Holosfernes but he did deserve it is shown in detail It is a solid, heavy book and it feels good to hold it The pages are all glossy and, e Other reviewers have described Caravaggio s dark side so I won t bother to here I will simply state what I loved about this book and I did love it.Let s start with the book itself It is compact, only 7 by 6 inches long and wide, but a good two inches thick It is a hard back with an enticing dust cover The face of Judith the charming lady who beheaded Holosfernes but he did deserve it is shown in detail It is a solid, heavy book and it feels good to hold it The pages are all glossy and, even though it is not coffee table size, Taschen has mde sure to give coffee table size detail to each and every painting as well as smaller versions of the complete painting In short, this book is an absolute treat.I did not know much about Caravaggio, although I did recognize some of the paintings I came across him in an encyclopedia I was reading about the history of art He entrigued me so I got this book plus a biography.This book, while giving some background, dealswith the analysis of his works, who influenced him and whom he influenced.A couple interesting facts Caravaggio elevated the technique of chiaroscuro to an unprecedented level Chiaroscuro is creating sharp contrasts between light and dark His work influenced later artists like Rembrandt.Another thing Caravaggio did was to create realistic paintings, much to the shock of his contemporary public Traditionally, biblical figures were made to look unearthly, above the common man Caravaggio painted them in contemporary dress looking like ordinary people.His paintings are highly dramatic, sometimes sordid, such as the beheading of John, or David holding the head of Goliath, whose eyes look as though they were still fading from life Other paintings are depictions of the martyrs and also Lazarus being raised.The most powerful painting for me is his second rendition of Paul on the road to Damascus Paul is on his back, his arms in the air as he tries to shield himself from the blinding light He is lying next to his horse whom he has presumably just fallen off He looks in danger of being trampled underfoot.Caravaggio s temperament got him into trouble, he got into brawls, killed a man in a duel, was in and out of trouble with the law, escaping severe punishment because of his patrons Nevertheless, he died young due to a sudden illness.After his death little was known about him It seems as if a lot of his life was erased and biographies only came later But Caravaggio is an artist worth getting to know, his work is absorbing and this book does it justice

    One of the most awesome coffee table books huge and heavy but worth the space, weight, and price for its reproductions and analysis I probably saw about half the original paintings many of them last spring in Rome, but also in Florence, Madrid, New York across the years but only recently when reading both the Romanian language novel The Black Butterfly by R Paraschivescu which alternates between a rambling monologue from Caravaggio and third person Rome action of various characters that w One of the most awesome coffee table books huge and heavy but worth the space, weight, and price for its reproductions and analysis I probably saw about half the original paintings many of them last spring in Rome, but also in Florence, Madrid, New York across the years but only recently when reading both the Romanian language novel The Black Butterfly by R Paraschivescu which alternates between a rambling monologue from Caravaggio and third person Rome action of various characters that will lead to the tragic fight that made the painter a fugitive for his last 4 turbulent years of his fairly short but eventful life and the biography of the painter by A Graham Dixon that I became fascinated with the painter and remembered that I had this book for a while now.Definitely recommended as a superb coffee table book, both informative but also great looking

    Light on the commentary and heavy on the images fantastic The details are so big that you can get a sense for Caravaggio s technique and how he achieved such stunning effects, see where he used his finger to smear the paint and where the brushwork is looser Also the later pictures like the beheading of st John, the burial of st Lucy and the Raising of Lazarus have to be seen larger to have anything like their true effect in person Very useful On a trip a few years ago, I managed to see ma Light on the commentary and heavy on the images fantastic The details are so big that you can get a sense for Caravaggio s technique and how he achieved such stunning effects, see where he used his finger to smear the paint and where the brushwork is looser Also the later pictures like the beheading of st John, the burial of st Lucy and the Raising of Lazarus have to be seen larger to have anything like their true effect in person Very useful On a trip a few years ago, I managed to see many of these pictures and the aftermath they created in the history of art Consider Caravaggio s realism very nearly ended the art of painting in 1600, a crisis much greater than that which modernism created at the end of the 19th century Velasquez, Rubens, Rembrandt and others all responded to the challenge in different ways, through modifications and innovations of style It is a heroic story that unfolds within so called academic painting

    Do I have a quasi fetishistic thing for books published by Taschen Yes But even with that bias, listen up, because this book is stellar I don t even have to time to talk about the gorgeous full page detail views of Caravaggio masterpieces, because I hadn t known much about the artist s biography before now So you ve got this hotshot genius from the provinces who makes a name for himself with secular, homoerotic paintings of beautiful boys He gets to travel to the Rome the center of art, t Do I have a quasi fetishistic thing for books published by Taschen Yes But even with that bias, listen up, because this book is stellar I don t even have to time to talk about the gorgeous full page detail views of Caravaggio masterpieces, because I hadn t known much about the artist s biography before now So you ve got this hotshot genius from the provinces who makes a name for himself with secular, homoerotic paintings of beautiful boys He gets to travel to the Rome the center of art, the center of Christendom, hell, the center of the world as he probably sees it and takes the city by storm He is producing paintings like nobody s ever seen, but his vision is so radical that when he gets hired to do large scale religious installations, he takes things in a quasi blasphemous direction and gets in trouble with the authorities He also gets into trouble with the secular authorities because he lives a life of debauchery and hedonism and has a just barely high enough station that he s allowed to carry a sword Then, at the height of his fame, he kills a man and has to flee from Rome For years he toils in the provinces again, always striving to clear his name He paints portraits of some influential men who seek a pardon on his behalf Then a hitman, probably sent by the family of the man he killed, disfigures his face with a blade After that, Caravaggio s work becomes less saturated andspiritual His religious works are less blasphemous, andfocused on pain, suffering, the ecstasy of a martyr After four years of exile, Caravaggio receives his pardon In his first known self portrait, he had painted himself as Bacchus After this pardon, he gives us his final self portrait a David and Goliath, except he doesn t paint himself as the bright, victorious youth, but as the severed head of Goliath Caravaggio starts his travels back toward Rome After years of striving, he can finally return to the Eternal City He s still a youngish man, he can win back what he s lost Then he is accidentally arrested, and although he gets out of jail soon enough, he catches something in there Tragically, anticlimactically, he dies of a fever before he can return to Rome, not even 40.And also did I mention that we have no contemporary biographies of him, no surviving letters or diaries, no first hand accounts from people who knew him personally The man is a blank That biographical sketch above is virtually all that we have Oh but imagine if a talented storyteller stepped into that void Imagine what kind of a story they could tell about art, about hedonism, about destructive genius and pride that goeth before the fall And also if we re trying to market this thing to a 21st century audience, comeon, you know Caravaggio was having as much as sex as a Game of Thrones character, with guys and girls both Can Hilary Mantel please make this for me Can Luchino Visconti please make this for me ANYBODY I just really need a historical fiction treatment of Caravaggio novel or biopic, I m not picky

    I lusted after this book and received it for Xmas how lucky am I i have one question why is Still Life With Fruit on a Stone Ledge not included Not even in the attributions section I know some scholars discount it, but as there is a catalogue of attributed paintings, I am perplexed Peter Robb in M cites provenance as the 1671 inventory of Barberini s collection It was included in the 2003 4 Darkness and Light Caravaggio His World exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW and National Gallery I lusted after this book and received it for Xmas how lucky am I i have one question why is Still Life With Fruit on a Stone Ledge not included Not even in the attributions section I know some scholars discount it, but as there is a catalogue of attributed paintings, I am perplexed Peter Robb in M cites provenance as the 1671 inventory of Barberini s collection It was included in the 2003 4 Darkness and Light Caravaggio His World exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW and National Gallery of Victoria.The papers from a symposium held Nov 910 at the College of William Mary by the Muscarelle Museum of Art contain various articles claiming it as a Caravaggio.John Spike has comprehensively assessed it.So, if anyone can enlighten me.Despite this, I am in love with this volume Be in no doubt it is heavy and large needs a decent size coffee table It is not destined to sit on my bookshelves alongside my two favourite exhibition catalogs the aforesaidmentioned Darkness Light the British National Gallery s 2005 Caravaggio the final years.The claim is made on the dustjacket that Our notion of Caravaggio s oeuvre has been profoundly transformed in recent decades by major exhibitions, restoration campaigns, new attributions and archival discoveries this comprehensive catalogue of works ofers a detailed overview of Caravaggio s entire oeuvre on the basis of the latest scholarly findings Are thererecent scholarly findings other than the papers comments I have cited which would definitely exclude this work from even inclusion as an attribution

    Because there are not enough hours in the day to satisfy the average person s craving for art, it is unfortunately necessary to limit our focus sometimes, paying attention to this particular artist and forgoing everyone else while we re thus engaged The result of this is, all too often, an appreciation of specific moments and people who have come to our attention while the rest of art and culture fades somewhat into the background until it s someone else s turn to step into the spotlight.That s Because there are not enough hours in the day to satisfy the average person s craving for art, it is unfortunately necessary to limit our focus sometimes, paying attention to this particular artist and forgoing everyone else while we re thus engaged The result of this is, all too often, an appreciation of specific moments and people who have come to our attention while the rest of art and culture fades somewhat into the background until it s someone else s turn to step into the spotlight.That s the case with Michelangelo da Caravaggio, at least it has been for me I knew of hissignificant works because of time spent in Art History courses once upon a long time ago, but it is only with my immersion in this terrific book that I have really come to appreciate the genius of this astonishingly gifted painter Almost exactly contemporaneous with Shakespeare born 8 years after him and died 6 years before him , Caravaggio s contribution to art is evident just by looking at the nature of painting before him and then comparing it to what happened afterward Just the use of chiaroscuro interplay of light and shadow for dramatic effect marks a revolutionary change in the drama of the scene and there is no way it didn t affect the work of absolutely everyone who followed him, most obviously Rubens and Rembrandt.While I would have liked a littleon the actual biographical details of the man, this concentration on the art itself is outstanding, entertaining, and enlightening

    Mungkin, hal yang paling membuatku bingung, pertamanya mengetahui Caravaggio dan Velazquez, adalah, aku selalu tertukar akan keduanya Awalnya aku sangat ingin memiliki Velazquez tapi harganya terlampau mahal untukku Dan akhirnya, aku memilih Caravaggio yang misterius dan agak gelap Saat buku ini datang dan aku membukanya Aku tak menyangka isinya begitu memukau Bisa dibilang Caravaggio edisi ini adalah satu penemuan yang lain.
