Der zu seinen Lebzeiten als kontrovers geltende italienische Maler Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) hat seinen heutigen Weltruhm als hervorragender Künstler des Barock einer Wiederentdeckung im frühen 20. Jahrhundert zu verdanken. Seitdem sind die Bilder des streitbaren Verfechters der realistischen Malweise geschätzt wie nie zuvor. Zu recht, denn es conflict Caravaggio, der religiöser Kunst eine neue Menschlichkeit einhauchte, mit seinen realitätsgetreuen und gleichzeitig sinnlichen Bildnissen von Menschen, Heiligen und Göttern. Für Caravaggio galt allein die Schönheit des Naturgetreuen, dass er geschickt mit der von ihm neu „restaurierten“ chiaroscuro-Technik in Szene zu setzen wusste. Dieses Streben brachte ihn auf Kollisionskurs mit den Künstlern und dem Klerus seiner Zeit, die ihm Pietätlosigkeit und einen verruchten Lebensstil vorwarfen.
Dieses Buch vereint die Erkenntnisse zweier Caravaggio-Experten, Félix Witting und M. L. Patrizi, und berichtet vom turbulenten Leben und Schaffen dieses genialen Malers.
