    This book is by far the most comprehensive, thoughtful and well-

    This book is by far the most comprehensive, thoughtful and well-written book on Caravaggio, his works and the society in which he lived.  It was a pleasure to read and quite an easy read, at that.  My husband, whole he loves Caravaggio's work, was less than enthused about reading his biography.  However, even he found this book enjoyable as well as incredibly informative.  We both appreciate Graham-Dixon's meticulous research and historically contextual additions to the story of the life of this brilliant and complex artist. A super book!

    What is up with this price?

    This book is not going to appeal to the general public. Why make it so expensive for the Nook, especially the first edition Nook which doesn't show the pictures well?

    A great book about a great artist!

    CARAVAGGIO is a detailed biography of an incrediable artist. His was a frantic existence, with an incrediable legacy. There are copies of most of his paintings, all of them described in the text. The author tries to dispell the rumors, and delivers the facts. A treat for art lovers, historians, and general readers. Caravaggio was an complex person, and his paintings show this. I recommend this to anyone, even to persons looking for a entertaining read.
