A fascinating examination of Caravaggio and those who adopted his dramatic style of painting. In this extensively illustrated book, Letizia Treves introduces the international Caravaggesque movement and traces the distinct artistic personalities of its leading players.

Even now, Caravaggio’s name overshadows the other talented artists who adopted his approach to narrative painting: the use of theatrical lighting to illuminate a story encapsulated in a single, dramatic moment. Treves explains the innovative and unifying features of these painters’ work and how, despite resistance to their style and subject matter, many outstanding Caravaggesque pictures found their way into important collections.
