Following the success of Michelangelo, the Sistine Chapel and Vincent Van Gogh are two new books on artists whose work continues to inspire: Klimt and Carvaggio. Gustav Klimt's work remains widely popular today, admired for the sensual portraits of women and the signature use of gold. Gustav Klimt includes thirty-one of the Viennese artist's works, from his famous The Kiss to the vast Beethoven Frieze. Carvaggio has enjoyed renewed popularity, inspired by recent biographies investigating his fascinating life and work. He is "more fashionable today than any time since the early seventeenth-century" (New Republic, January 17, 2000). Carvaggio highlights twenty-eight paintings by the tormented Baroque master, including Judith Beheading Holofernes and the Calling of Saint Matthew.
