Book DescriptionBorn Michelangelo Merisi, as an adult he became known by the name of his birthplace, Caravaggio (1571-1610), he was the most revolutionary artist of the Italian Baroque. Consistently emphasizing the humanity of his religious subjects, he established a new way of painting. The intensity of his chiaroscuro style is matched only by the drama of his life. Outlaw, heretic, murderer, and sensualist were a few of the charges brought against him by his contemporaries. Patrick Hunt?s wide-ranging professional and personal scholarship allows him to interpret Caravaggio?s complicated religious and classical imagery while anchoring his art in his life.
