Summary Caravaggio A Life Sacred and Profane

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio 29 September 1571–18 July 1610 lived probably the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters The worlds of Milan and Rome through which Caravaggio moved and which Andrew Graham Dixon describes brilliantly in this book are th.

    The messy story of what happened to Caravaggio's last paintings is also a microcosm of his afterlife and a parable illustrating his singularity as a painter He had always been an outsider a troublemaker a difficult and dangerous man Yet his art was so compelling so original so unforgettable that people were simply transfixed by it They fought to look at it gathering in the hundreds every time a new altarpiece was unve
