Extensively examining the oeuvre of an important follower of Caravaggio who became a pivotal figure in early 17th-century Neapolitan art, this scholarly catalogue features reproductions and detailed analyses of 37 paintings chiefly on religious themes by Battistello (Giovanni Battista Caracciolo, 1578-1635) while also documenting 120 works by Caravaggio, Ribera, Vouet, Stanzione, Artemisia Gentileschi and more than 25 other artists. Includes a lengthy, well-illustrated essay tracing the development of a naturalist style of painting in Naples under the leadership of Battistello, an overview of the artist's career and the critical reception accorded his work, and a discussion of the restoration of several of the featured paintings.
