Michelangelo Merisi Da Caravaggio

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily.

In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artist's oeuvre, and authoritative texts illustrate the decisive stages in the artist's life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.
