I, Caravaggio

July 2023

For the past four hundred years, the groundbreaking Italian artist, Caravaggio, has challenged, intrigued, and transformed us. Suzanne Lang talks with Terence Ward on his book that combines memoir, history, biography, and journalism, The Guardian of Mercy: How an Extraordinary Painting by Caravaggio Changed an Ordinary Life. Suzanne also talks with author Eugenio Volpe on his post-modern novel I, Caravaggio, that depicts the artist’s phychological unraveling while evolving his art and arising as a super star.

“Volpe's outrageously inventive novel recreates Caravaggio and early modern Rome with a post-modern spin, all the while asking shockwave questions: Who is art really for, the masses or ourselves? Are we our own Gods? Whiplash smart, this novel did what the best books do: it changed the way I see not just Caravaggio, but the world.” 

--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and With or Without You
