Caravaggio, or more accurately Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610), was a legend even in his own lifetime. Celebrated by some for his naturalism and his revolutionary pictorial inventions, he was considered by others to have destroyed painting. Few other artists have provoked such controversy and so many contradictory interpretations right up to modern times.

Just in time for the Caravaggio year 2010, this work offers a comprehensive reassessment of Caravaggio"s entire oeuvre, with a catalogue raisonne" of his works. Five introductory chapters analyse his artistic career from his training in Lombard Milan and his triumphal rise in papal Rome, up to his dramatic final years in Naples, Malta and Sicily. The spotlight thereby falls upon the radical nature and innovative force of Caravaggio"s art and its influence in all of Europe.

Our understanding of Caravaggio"s work has been substantially broadened in recent decades by major exhibitions, restoration campaigns, new attributions and archival discoveries. The new catalogue raisonne" offers a detailed overview of the artist"s entire oeuvre based on the latest research. Every painting is reproduced in large-scale format, with spectacular details that offer dramatic close-ups and set new standards in print quality. A new photographic campaign has been undertaken, enabling the smallest details to be reproduced on a large scale for the first time. They reveal all the more clearly Caravaggio’s virtuosity and his enormous ability to capture the viewer’s attention and to build a communicative bridge between the worlds of picture and viewer. Sequences of spectacular details grouped by subject allow us to experience Caravaggio’s ingenious rhetoric of looks and gestures and their theatrical staging in paint.

Sebastian Schutze, a professor in the Department of Art and the Bader Chair in Southern Baroque Art, has won a prestigious award for his book on the art patronage of Cardinal Maffeo Barberini.

One of the most prestigious prizes in its field, the Premio Daria Borghese was founded in 1965 and is awarded annually to a book dedicated to Rome and its central role in the development of European history, art and culture.

Professor Schutze won for Kardinal Maffeo Barberini und die Entstehung des romischen Hochbarock, published in 2007.

Barberini was elected Pope Urban VIII in 1623 and can be described as the most important papal patron in 17th-century Rome.He discovered artists such as Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini and Pietro da Cortona, and was instrumental in creating the baroque style that soon spread all over Europe.

Professor Schutze received his award on May 17 at the Palazzo Borghese in Rome.
