Catherine Puglisi has put together a very informative and visually stunning book about a phenomenal artist who had been marginalized for many years, until his justified resurrection. As an artist/author myself, I find many of Caravaggio’s works to be major contributions to the history of Western art. His Crucifixion of St. Peter, for instance, was utterly groundbreaking on many levels.

Catherine Puglisi, "Caravaggio", p. 79. Longhi was with Caravaggio on the night of the fatal brawl with Tomassoni; Robb . These connections are treated in most biographies and studies-see, for example, Catherine Puglisi, "Caravaggio", . 58, for a brief outline. Longhi was with Caravaggio on the night of the fatal brawl with Tomassoni; Robb, "M", . 41, believes that Minniti was as well. H. Waga "Vita nota e ignota dei virtuosi al Pantheon" Rome 1992, Appendix I, pp. 219 and 220ff. Ralf van Bühren, Caravaggio’s ‘Seven Works of Mercy’ in Naples, 2017.

However, if you are studying Caravaggio in depth, you will want more than Catherine Puglisi’s excellent book. In particular, Howard Hibb’s book,Caravaggio.

Puglisi's Caravaggio is a lavishly produced book containing excellent reproductions of many of his works in situ. While it will appeal to the general reader who is interested in a survey of Caravaggio's work, the appeal for the more expert reader will be in the excellent appendix of attributed and lost works and the series of recently discovered documents on the artist. These bring the drama of Caravaggio magnificently to life and ravish the ey. -Guardian.

As Catherine Puglisi points out in the most beautiful Caravaggio book ever, the soulful, tormented, ethereally talented painter has become a pop icon, with a "full-blown industry of Caravaggio publications." Puglisi's book is a standout in this crowded field. With remarkable evenhandedness, she sifted through the scholarship and discoveries--and the trash--of the past 20 years and wrote a Caravaggio book that does justice to the painter's glorious work. She doesn't skimp on the juicy parts of his life, however: she candidly but coolly recounts and appraises the bits of historical evidence for his sexuality (both hetero and homo), his use of whores and ruffians as models, and his many scrapes with the law. All the while, she focuses the reader on the paintings, aptly describing such naturalistic, groundbreaking works as The Calling of St. Matthew, of 1599. Gazing at the large, double-page color plates in Puglisi's book, it is easy to feel the erotic pull of the many early canvasses of supple youths that have been so widely reproduced in recent years. But the later religious pictures, in which the models for the saints and Madonnas still seem almost palpable in their reality, have the most dramatic magnetism. Rest on the Flight into Egypt is particularly moving. It may never be possible to unravel the tangled web of Caravaggio's life, but Puglisi manages to restore a welcome balance to our view of his art. --Peggy Moorman

Catherine Puglisi has put together a very informative and visually stunning book about a phenomenal artist who had been marginalized for many years, until his justified resurrection.

Caravaggio has long been one of my top favorite artists, having had the good fortune of seeing a number of his works firsthand at several museums here in America and in Europe.

As an artist/author myself, I find many of Caravaggio’s works to be major contributions to the history of Western art. His “Crucifixion of St. Peter,” for instance, was utterly groundbreaking on many levels. His composition was boldly unique and extreme, with its shocking viewpoint and perspective, and captures the tragic moment with emotional drama and sheer technical perfection.

Naturally, there are numerous other pieces that I can expound upon, but suffice it to say, this robust edition on Caravaggio is a delight for any serious student of art or adult.

For those interested in inspiring children with great role models, including Caravaggio, peruse the whimsical picture book “Meet My Famous Friends.”

In closing, Puglisi’s volume here is a treasure trove of historical information about Caravaggio’s volatile life and times, and offers nicely reproduced artwork that’s worth every penny and a lot more. Although some plates are spread across two pages, causing irritating seams in the artwork, I cannot fault Puglisi for that, as I’m sure Phaidon made those calls. And despite the small font size of the text, which at least the lines were spaced far enough apart to give the pages visual relief, this volume is highly recommended for Puglisi’s well-researched and well-written text and, of course, for Caravaggio’s beautiful artwork. Bravo!

Dr. Catherine Puglisi is not only a fine scholar, well informed about her subject, she is also a fine writer. CARAVAGGIO is a richly produced heavy volume (hardcover reviewed) that spreads the text throughout the course of the book as each of the points about the artist's life and technique and gifts to art history is explored.

The color plates are reproduced with clarity and two-page extensions of the larger horizontal works aid the reader in gaining perspective. Multiple images of details offer close examination of Caravaggio's technique, a manner that continues to influence representational artists today.

Puglisi gratefully does not shy away from the controversial aspects of Caravaggio's life and sexuality. She deals with the facts and presents them in context with his concurrent paintings. The volume includes an exceptionally fine body of appendices that offers a complete checklist of the paintings including small reproductions of some, a terse bibliography, and a series of extracts from the myriad sources from which Puglisi extracted information.

The one criticism of this book, and it is a significant one, is the small type font in the pale gray ink selected by a designer who seems more concerned with 'making a pretty book' than in respecting the written word! But in the end this is a definitive volume about one of art history's more interesting and gifted painters. Grady Harp, December 05

Written by a researcher who has done her work! This book is an exquisite piece of art. Intelligent, interesting, and absolutely perfect images from beginning to end. I HIGHLY recommend all Art and Art History majors read this, as well as anyone who appreciates Caravaggio, and anyone who appreciates a brilliant author an Art Historian. So impressed. Thank you Dr. Catherine Puglisi!

Though the pictures and the presentation of the material is really first rate- everything I've read published by Phaidon is of that same high quality. Check out the book about Jaques Louis David, it's really worth it- the prose is academic. She makes a sexy subject limp with too many digressions and over elaborations of details that weren't needed. That's doesn't mean don't buy, the pictures alone are worth the price. I will try another book for the biographical information.

I just purchased this book based on previous reviews. One disappointment I have with it is the cropped paintings or paintings with the seem slicing through them. It's frustrating as a student of the arts to try and copy the tiny details out of the bindings. Aside from that, I am glad I bought it. The works inside are fantastic.

This is an excellent book. The pictures are amazing! and the explanation is precise. I give it 5 stars!

I ordered this book sight unseen, eager for a new work on Caravaggio and excited by the description of color plates on double-page spreads. The book arrived this week, and the color is just grand. Unfortunately I can say nothing about the text, because the designers at Phaidon Press were allowed to specify small sans-serif type, printed in silver grey on fairly glossy paper, so that the text is not really readable, at least by me and the colleagues who've also seen the book. Given Catherine Puglisi's previous work, I am sure the text is excellent, and I'm terribly disappointed that it's almost illegible. Shame on Phaidon Press--they've done the book and the author, and their would-be readers, a genuine disservice.
I have been looking for recent books on Caravaggio for use in an art history class that I will give this Spring. I've done "spot" reading of this text, and found fascinating insights. However, it is hard for me to understand why such difficult to read silvery grey text was used. Perhaps younger eyes than mine would not have problems with this choice. However, my eyes rebelled rapidly, and although fascinated with the message, the medium proved exhausting. The font choice and size are also, in my opinion, poor ones. I suppose the aim was to produce a beauiful book, and it is that, but in my opinion the book's function of transmitting information is undercut by the odd typography design.
