Abstract

Caravaggio has long been regarded as a revolutionary painter by virtue of his artistic language, which has aroused interest, involvement and authentic passion in patrons, collectors, writers and simple art lovers in various periods. The purpose of these two volumes is to shed light on his pictorial methods through technical research on the twenty-two unquestionably autograph works in Rome.

On the basis of the findings of first-hand investigation of the paintings, the first volume addresses a number of crucial themes with studies by the most authoritative scholars in the sector that examine the master’s artistic trajectory, the complex art-critical interpretations, the state of preservation and the latest investigative techniques. The result is an unprecedented image of the painter, midway between tradition and innovation, and a possible answer to the questions about his success, which has continued through the centuries and the most varied schools of art and criticism.
