These essays consider Caravaggio's revolutionary "realism" from a range of perspectives. As a whole, the volume adds to the understanding of Caravaggio's relationship to the "new" science of observation championed by Galileo and reexamines the theoretical nature of Caravaggio's seemingly direct realism. Some of the essays extend the research on Caravaggio's intellectual and social milieu and the effects of high and low cultures. Distributed by Associated University Presses.
