Caravaggio irrevocably changed the course of painting: not since Michelangelo or Raphael had an artist influenced so many of his contemporaries. The captivating book accompanying the exhibition illustrates this notion of “Caravaggism,” showcasing 60 works by Caravaggio and the important artists of the period who drew inspiration from him, including Rubens, Ribera, and La Tour. Essays by major Caravaggio scholars illuminate the underlying themes of the exhibition, reveal how Caravaggio altered the style and interpretation of many traditional subjects and inspired unusual new ones, and explore the artist’s legacy. The catalogue for Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome is available in softcover for $40 and in hardcover for $50. It is published by Yale University Press, New Haven and London, in association with the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and the Kimbell Art Museum.
