Caravaggio was on a defiant mission to change the art world. Before him, there were pastel-colored idealized visions, polite paintings for a polite society. After him, there were slews of imitators, trying to grasp his brilliant slashes of light and dark, his people who looked more like your neighbor than a model of perfection. Bold with his brush, the young rebel was equally brash in his life, picking fights and getting arrested for things as silly as throwing a plate of artichokes in a waiter's face. Until he faced the ultimate punishment, condemned for a murder he didn't commit—at least not intentionally.

A Revolution in Painting The mysterious genius who transformed European art Caravaggio, or more accurately Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610), was always a name to be reckoned with. Notorious bad boy of Italian painting, the artist was at once celebrated and controversial: violent in temper, precise in technique, a creative master, and a man on the run. Today, he is considered one of the greatest influences in all art history. This Bibliotheca Universalis edition offers a neat yet comprehensive Caravaggio catalogue raisonn�. Each of his paintings is reproduced from recent top-quality photography, allowing for a vivid encounter with the artist's ingenious repertoire of looks and gestures, as well as numerous detail shots of his boundary-breaking naturalism, whether a grubby foot or the soft folds of a sagging stomach. Five accompanying chapters trace the complete arc of Caravaggio's career from his first public commissions in Rome through to his growing celebrity status, while the book's detailed chronology traces his tempestuous personal life, in which drama loomed as prominently as in his chiaroscuro canvases. About the series: Bibliotheca Universalis-- Compact cultural companions celebrating the eclectic TASCHEN universe at an unbeatable, democratic price! Since we started our work as cultural archaeologists in 1980, the name TASCHEN has become synonymous with accessible, open-minded publishing.

Set in the violent city of Rome in 1600 a young painter, Caravaggio, brawls in taverns, finds his models in brothels and in the faces of the homeless, falls in lust and paints his way to fame with original, realistic, powerful and controversial images. But at the height of his notoriety he murders a vicious aristocrat in a gang fight and pursued by the dead man's brothers, and bounty hunters, he seeks refuge on Malta only to be tortured by the Grand Master and the Inquisition still running there. He escapes the fortress Valletta painting on the run in exile while being pursued by the Knights of Malta waiting desperately for a pardon from the Pope so he can return safely to Rome.

Art critic, historian, writer, TV presenter, politician and professional provocateur, Vittorio Sgarbi is a prominent figure in Italy's cultural landscape. Controversial, often caustic, and always charismatic, his thought-provoking opinions and writings leave no room for indifference. In this highly readable and well-informed book, Sgarbi covers the life and works of Caravaggio, analyzing the genius's disordered and adventurous existence and the revolutionary greatness of his masterpieces. As Vittorio Sgarbi writes in the book: "The life and work of an artist always end up looking alike; but in Caravaggio's life there was a sense of fun, an enjoyment of burlesque and a lack of propriety that is not reflected even in his in most daring works. In Caravaggio, we had the cohabitation of a sophisticated, intellectual capable of imprinting an ideal turning point in the course of history and the principal character of an adventure story-quarrelsome, overbearing, cursed-as he was portrayed in romantic interpretations. On the other hand, his intemperance cannot be ascribed to the spirit of the times; behavior that we would call extravagant today was instead common in such violent and difficult times. The true greatness of Caravaggio lay in his having shown the other, and indeed authentic side of reality. But these are external elements, psychological reflections that pass from life into art."

Fame & Infamy is part of the series—a conveniently portable, stylishly packaged and eminently collectible set of six books that each open a window onto a selection of remarkable stories, characters and themes from the past. Fame & Infamy tells the stories of adultery, perversion, shameless greed, theft and deception that have brought down presidents, prime ministers, clergy and famous people of practically every stripe. The gripping cloak-and-dagger dramas climax in catastrophic exposures and career- destroying indiscretions that rival great fiction and are all the more astounding because they are seminal moments in our history. The stories star famous names and often share selfish desires, yet each tale shocks us, sometimes for its audacity, sometimes its complexity and sometimes its pure idiocy, from televangelist Jimmy Swaggart caught with a prostitute, Howard Hughes's bizarre personal hygiene to Anthony Blunt who attained British royal favour while spying for the Soviet Union. Alternately disturbing and amazing, the narratives reveal clandestine affairs, underhanded political dealings, blatant criminal activity and other dramatic episodes that erupt in the lives of successful people gone bad.
