This book was essential during my History of Art course. It manages to be both informative and entertaining without being overly wordy like many art books. The images throughout were clear and extremely helpful during reading and the fact that they were in colour allows the reader to gain a fuller grasp about what the artist was trying to achieve.
This is a magnificent book that I recomend to everyone - be they art students or just people who are interested in the genius of Caravaggio. This book does what many books try vainly to do - be accessible to beginners and scholars alike. If only there were more authors like this in the art world...

This book must set the standard for books on Art History.
Catherine Puglisti writes so clearly that the narrative flows like a novel. All the sources are here and she has produced a mix of biography, social and religious history and art criticism which is unique. As the other reviews have said, the quantity and quality of the illustrations is superb.

Caravaggio's pictures are lavishly illustrated here, but Puglisi gives you more for your money than just paintings. All the key sources (Baglione etc.) are given in full at the back, and her narrative covers both Caravaggio's pictures as well as his life with sensitivity and insight.
Studying Caravaggio, I read a variety of books, but this was the best by a mile. Very, very good value too.
"M" gives you polemic, albeit entertaining polemic.
This gives you sense and the evidence is before your eyes.

I must admit, I didn't know much about Caravaggio before I picked up this book or the artistical era for that matter. It does give you a great insight into the artist and his influences, sighting particular paintings of other artists that influenced Caravaggio's final master pieces. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is definitly a must for the inexperienced aswell as the experienced artist or historian. A delgihtful read ( and excellant prints aswell),
