The First Medusa / La Prima Medusa - Caravaggio


168 pages; numerous color illustrations. The severed Medusa Gorgon head painted by Caravaggio as a mirror shield relating to the action by Perseus. Art historian scholars wondered at the kinship of this painting to an almost identical Caravaggio in the Florence Uffizi. Using x-ray, reflectographic examination, and seemingly painstaking eyesight and judgment based on experience and knowledge they answered. Fascinating history and art history. Clean and bright throughout; tight binding.
