A revolution in painting: The mysterious genius who transformed European art

Caravaggio, or more accurately Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610), was always a name to be reckoned with. Notorious bad boy of Italian painting, the artist was at once celebrated and controversial: Violent in temper, precise in technique, a creative master, and a man on the run.

This work offers a comprehensive reassessment of Caravaggio’s entire oeuvre with a catalogue raisonn? of his works. Each painting is reproduced in large format, with recent, high production photography allowing for dramatic close-ups with Caravaggio's ingenious details of looks and gestures.

Five introductory chapters analyze Caravaggio's artistic career from his early struggle to make a living, through his first public commissions in Rome, and his growing celebrity status. They look at his increasing daring with lighting and with a boundary-breaking realism which allowed even biblical events to unfold with an unprecedented immediacy before the viewer. An accompanying artist chronology follows Caravaggio's equally tumultous personal life.

This is the definitive work about Caravaggio for generations to come, to be delved into and put on display, with its slipcase neatly converting into a book stand.

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.
