This 25-page Caravaggio Picture Study Aid includes a summary of the early life of the Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio (1571-1610), a synopsis of seven of his works, a separate file with printable versions of the pieces covered (or professional prints are also available), and a brief discussion about Charlotte Mason’s ideas and methods for implementing picture study.

The Lives of the Modern Painters, Sculptors and Architects

By Giovan Pietro Bellori

“This is the first complete translation of the biographies of fifteen artists, including Annibale Carracci, Carvaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, and Poussin, written by the seventeenth-century antiquarian Giovan Pietro Bellori. Originally conceived as a continuation of Vasari’s famous Lives, it is a fundamental source for seventeenth-century Italian art and artistic theory, providing detailed descriptions of extant and lost works of art, while casting light on the cultural politics of contemporary Rome and the relations between Rome and France. The importance of Bellori’s Lives lies in the scrupulous documentation of artists, many of whom he knew personally; the author’s detailed descriptions of their works; and his exposition of the classicist theory of art in the introductory lecture, the Idea. This volume contains the twelve Lives published in the original edition of 1672 and three Lives (Guido Reni, Andrea Sacchi, and Carlo Maratti) that survive in manuscript form and that were published for the first time in 1942.”

Unfortunately, I was unable to find any children’s books for Caravaggio. If you know of one you’d like to recommend, please contact me!
