Caravaggio: Gestures & Expressions

It was not only his dramatic use of light and shadow, but also the visceral and emotional details of his figures that made Caravaggio one of the defining artists of the Baroque. Caravaggio quoted some of the most iconic gestures in art – such as God's and Adam’s extended hands in Michelangelo's Sistine ceiling – and gave them new life. Discover the sources and meanings behind these and other expressive details in this dynamic digital book. This concise volume zooms in to the figures in 17 of Caravaggio’s most powerful works and is accompanied by a short biography of the artist’s brief and turbulent life.
