“What begins in the work of Caravaggio is, quite simply, modern painting.” Such were the words of famed art critic André Berne-Joffroy (1915-2007) on the topic of the famed Baroque master, and few since have been able to capture the significance of Caravaggio in such a succinct manner. Stefano Zuffi’s new book, Caravaggio in Detail, deliberately – and satisfyingly – aims to do just the opposite: examine the work of Caravaggio through his compositions’ numerous, intricate elements. Part of a series of books that take a closer look at art, Caravaggio in Detail zooms in on some of the artist’s most beloved works and complements these detailed views with insightful art historical commentaries.
