Price: Not Available
Description: Roma: DEd'A, 2010. 21cm., pbk., 108pp., 51 color plates. English text. Summary: "Roy Doliner has brought together in thiis book a sort of Great Assembly of artists, scholars, poets and sages of many disciplines and many different eras in order to construct a portrait of Caravaggio that is both up-to-the-minute with the latest research and also quite evocative, thanks to the extraordinary image that he has succeeded in restoring to us of this outstanding and enigmatic artist. But, just as important, as a new and surprising explanatino ofthe work of Caravaggio, is the use the author makes of the ancient subject of the kabbalistic "Tree of Life" and of hte recent researches at the University of Toronto of the psychological function called "latent inhibition." Doliner never loses sight of the essence of the problems of Caravaggio and of those who study him, and in fact he places at the heart of the book the relationship between art and life - crucial to understanding an artist of this kind - and puts forth his own quite original interpretation o fthe deeper meaning of Caravaggio's painting, studied in all its aspects: technical, esthetic, and moral".
