By Laurent Bolard

Michelangelo Merisi, dit Caravage, est l’une des figures majeures de l’art occidental. L’une des plus singulières aussi. D’abord par sa peinture qui fascine à travers sa approach, son utilisation dramatique de l’éclairage et de l. a. couleur, et l. a. strength d’émotion qui s’en dégage. Ensuite par sa vie tumultueuse et sa personnalité hors du commun, dans cette période si tourmentée de los angeles Réforme catholique et de l. a. naissance de l’art baroque.Né à Milan dans une famille originaire de Caravaggio, liée à l. a. prestigieuse dynastie des Sforza-Colonna, Caravage y travailla quatre ans au carrier de Simone Peterzano puis partit pour Rome où il fut engagé dans l’atelier du Cavalier d’Arpin. Grâce au cardinal del Monte, qui lui acheta ses premières toiles et l’hébergea dans son palais, il devint l’un des peintres les plus convoités de los angeles Ville Eternelle.Mais cet homme fut aussi célèbre pour ses démêlés avec los angeles justice. Son goût pour les nuits de Rome l’amena à en fréquenter les bas-fonds, avec l. a. violence que cela impliquait. Plusieurs fois emprisonné, il dut s’exiler à Naples en 1606 après avoir commis un meurtre.Laurent Bolard nous raconte cette vie pittoresque et tourmentée, éminemment romanesque. Il s’attache à suivre pas à pas le parcours chaotique de l’artiste dans ses différents lieux de séjour et d’exil Milan, Rome, Naples, Malte, los angeles Sicile et suggest une passionnante lecture des peintures à travers les hypothèses et les analyses les plus récentes.Laurent Bolard est docteur en Histoire de l’Art moderne de l’Université de Paris-IV Sorbonne, spécialisé dans los angeles peinture italienne de los angeles Renaissance.
