Críticas:

Caravaggio has rarely been seen in such depth and such relief as in this marvellous biography. Andrew Graham-Dixon reads Caravaggio's paintings with the habits and assumptions, thoughts and fears of his contemporaries so that we see and feel the paintings more acutely and intensely than before. The man and his work emerge enriched and enlivened (Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum)

Caravaggio: A Life Sacred and Profane gave me immense pleasure and provided constant delight. It is a thrilling lesson in the art of seeing, a sensual exploration of the shadows of Caravaggio's sometimes violent but always Christian world, a detective story with a highly satisfying ending. Andrew Graham-Dixon's ability to have a reader see a painting through written language is a rare and precious gift. The book's rigour and integrity are obvious. I trusted every word and was sorry to turn the final page (Peter Carey)

Reseña del editor:

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. The worlds of Milan, Rome and Naples through which Caravaggio moved and which Andrew Graham-Dixon describes brilliantly in this book, are those of cardinals and whores, prayer and violence. On the streets surrounding the churches and palaces, brawls and swordfights were regular occurrences. In the course of this desperate life Caravaggio created the most dramatic paintings of his age, using ordinary men and women - often prostitutes and the very poor - to model for his depictions of classic religious scenes. Andrew Graham-Dixon's exceptionally illuminating readings of Caravaggio'spictures, which are the heart of the book, show very clearly how he created their drama, immediacy and humanity, and how completely he departed from the conventions of his time.

Descripción Paperback. Condición: new. Paperback. 'Action-packed, magisterial . . . Caravaggio's life was every bit as bloody, sexy and attention-grabbing as the paintings themselves and Graham-Dixon is a man who knows the paintings better than almost any. Here is a life, an argument for a life, and, most satisfyingly of al, a three-dimensional reimagining of his lived world' Ian Kelly, The Times 'Conveys the force of Caravaggio's personality and the consequences of his art with a brilliant grasp of detail . . . it is refreshing to read a biography of Caravaggio that combines the blood and guts of Rome's backstreets with a real understanding of the quality and character of his paintings' Charles Saumarez Smith, Daily Telegraph 'This is the stuff of thrillers and the story races along, with as many sword fights, courtroom appearances, unprintable insults and bloodshed . . . Graham-Dixon is a masterly art historian. He has a God-given ability to enter into the spirit of a painting and to tease out its meaning while preserving its mystery. It is a joy to be guided by his sharp eye' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday 'Meaty and revealing . . . illuminates the darkness of both Caravaggio's personality and his work' Michael Prodger, Sunday Telegraph 'As Graham-Dixon's page-turner of a narrative makes plain, this wasn't just a life sacred and profane, but one of action, intrigue and dirty deeds' Christopher Bray, Independent on Sunday Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. This book presents the readings of Caravaggio's pictures, which show how he created their drama, immediacy and humanity, and how completely he departed from the conventions of his time.
