Author(s): Giulio Mancini; Giovanni Baglione; Pietro Bellori

Special Orders

A new title in the successful Lives of the Artists series, which offers illuminating, and often intimate, accounts of iconic artists as viewed by their contemporaries.

The most notorious Italian painter of his day, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) forever altered the course of Western painting with his artistic ingenuity and audacity. This volume presents the most important early biographies of his life: an account by his doctor, Giulio Mancini; another by one of his artistic rivals, Giovanni Baglione; and a later profile by Giovanni Pietro Bellori that demonstrates how Caravaggio's impact was felt in seventeenth-century Italy. Together, these accounts have provided almost everything that is known of this enigmatic figure.
