Francine Prose's life of Caravaggio evokes the genius of this great artist through a brilliant reading of his paintings. Caravaggio defied the aesthetic conventions of his time; his use of ordinary people, realistically portrayed-street boys, prostitutes, the poor, the aged-was a profound and revolutionary innovation that left its mark on generations of artists. His insistence on painting from nature, on rendering the emotional truth of experience, whether religious or secular, makes him an artist who speaks across the centuries to our own time. In "Caravaggio", Francine Prose presents the brief but tumultuous life of one of the greatest of all painters with passion and acute sensitivity.
Francine Prose is the author of 15 books of fiction, including Goldengrove, A Changed Man, and Blue Angel, a finalist for the National Book Award, and the nonfiction New York Times bestseller Reading Like a Writer. Her latest book is Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife. A former president of PEN American Center, she lives in New York City.
