This is a major book about Caravaggio, one of the greatest and most influential painters the world has seen. It includes eight pages of colour plates, and twenty-four of black and white. The book was an art world sensation on its first publication, on account of its vernacular style and some of its propositions.
‘Staggering coarseness … tremendous vigour … wholly, richly alive … the real thing.’
