A REVOLUTION THROUGH TENEBRISM

By

German art historian Sebastian Schütze, a creative master and precise in technique, captures the human state with dramatic use of lighting

Caravaggio employes close physical observation with a dramatic use of chiaroscuro that came to be known as tenebrism. Bringing together the comprehensive collection of Caravaggio’s works, German art historian Sebastian Schütze traces the complete arc of Caravaggio’s career starting from his first public commissions in Rome through the time of his growing celebrity status. Through this coffee table book, Schütze’s work traces Caravaggio’s tempestuous personal life, in which drama loomed as prominently as in his canvases.
