Críticas:

"Recreates the mirror Caravaggio held up to nature with singular delicacy as well as passion and panache."--Hilary Spurling, "The New York Times Book Review"
"[Robb's] biography . . . comes across almost like an eyewitness account. His commentaries on the paintings convey a kind of informed passion in confrontation with genius . . . His account achieves both intimacy and vibrancy because of the richness of layering, its nonstop accumulation of analyzed detail."--Richard Bernstein, "The New York Times"
"Robb's ambitions are lofty and, plainly put, it is hard not to be seduced by his prose."--"The Washington Post"
"Partisan, sharply personal, and well worth reading."--"The Wall Street Journal"
"Passionate, perceptive . . . [Robb] succeeds brilliantly in bringing to life one of the handful of figures in art history whose genius blazed so brightly that it illuminated an entire age and changed forever the course of European art."--"The Baltimore Sun"
"It is clear that Caravaggio is Robb's oyster, and he makes him ours, too."--"The Boston Globe"
"That rarest of hybrids, a cerebral thrill ride, and its indulgences are more than balanced by the brilliance of insight."--"The Village Voice"
"A feast of art appreciation, storytelling, and witty speculation."--"Bookpage"

The wild persona of the late-sixteenth-century artist, who captured the dark, violent spirit of his age better than any of his contemporaries, is well-documented in this biography of Caravaggio by the author of Midnight in Sicily. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
