As Catherine Puglisi points out in the most beautiful Caravaggio book ever, the soulful, tormented, ethereally cathrrine painter has become a pop icon, with a “full-blown industry of Caravaggio publications. 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: All the while, she focuses the reader on the paintings, aptly describing actherine naturalistic, groundbreaking works as The Calling of St. 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 carvaaggio to unravel the tangled web of Caravaggio’s life, but Puglisi manages to faravaggio a welcome balance to our view of his art. Read more Read less.

Caravaggio by Catherine Puglisi

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. 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.

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. One person found this helpful. 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.

The chronological ordering of this book is helpful and the addition of primary sources at the end adds more depth to the writing. 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! 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. See all 16 reviews.
