Description - Caravaggio in Detail by Stefano Zuffi
Born in 1571 and dead before he was forty, Caravaggio is considered one of the great Italian masters. He developed a revolutionary painting style, easily recognizable for its unprecedented realism and approachability. This book reveals his paintings as never before, showing them in stunning, full-page details. It is organized around nine thematic chapters, such as still-lifes, the five senses, severed heads, body and skin, and speaking gestures. By explaining the significance of the individual details, art historian Stefano Zuffi provides us with new insights into the work of the brilliant Italian painter. Written in a clear and accessible language, this book guides readers through Caravaggio's oeuvre whilst offering astonishing views of his most popular works, including Bacchus, Medusa, David and Goliath, Judith and Holofernes and The Fortune Teller.
