Caravaggio Obsession by Banks, Oliver T. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Why Caravaggio? By it provoked testify to what some scholars call the Caravaggio disease, an obsession that consumes lives. Dixon’s readable and perceptive recent book, Caravaggio: Author: Thomas S. Hibbs.

Sexy Secrets. On at least two occasions in his work, Caravaggio offers us his head. In a particularly lurid version of self-oblation, Caravaggio painted his own features on the bloody head of Goliath being held by the hair at arm's length by a victorious David and thrust toward the viewer, in the Galleria Borghese representation of that Biblical episode.   Although his arrogance and obsession with fame make him difficult to like, there's no denying the innovative genius of Caravaggio: Painter on the Run. Mature tweens and up who can put the violence and attitudes about sex in historical context will really enjoy the richly detailed people, places, and events surrounding the groundbreaking artist.4/5.

  —The New York Times Book Review “Jonathan Harr has taken the story of the lost painting, and woven from it a deeply moving narrative about history, art and taste—and about the greed, envy, covetousness and professional jealousy of people who fall prey to obsession.4/4(44). Saving Caravaggio by Neil Griffiths and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Caravaggio Obsession. Banks, Oliver T. Published by Little Brown & Co ().
