Giovanni Pietro Bellori (15 January 1613 – 19 February 1696), also known as Giovan Pietro Bellori or Gian Pietro Bellori, was an Italian painter and antiquarian, but, more famously.

Giovanni Pietro Bellori (15 January 1613 – 19 February 1696), also known as Giovan Pietro Bellori or Gian Pietro Bellori, was an Italian painter and antiquarian, but, more famously, a prominent biographer of artists of the 17th century, equivalent to Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century.

The Lives of the Modern Painters, Sculptors, and Architects or Le vite de' pittori, scultori et architetti moderni is a series of artist biographies written by Gian Pietro Bellori (1613–96).

The Lives of the Modern Painters, Sculptors, and Architects or Le vite de' pittori, scultori et architetti moderni is a series of artist biographies written by Gian Pietro Bellori (1613–96), whom Julius von Schlosser called "the most important historiographer of art not only of Rome, but all Italy, even of Europe, in the seventeenth century". It is one of the foundational texts of the history and criticism of European art.

Giulio Mancini, Giovanni Baglione, Giovanni Pietro Bellori. In the course of a short and violent life, Michelangelo Merisl da Caravaggio (1571-1610) revolutionized painting, producing a style of shockingly immediate realism that swept through Europe. The impact of his art and personality continue to resonate to this day. Almost everything we know about Caravaggio's life comes from these three early biographies, which reflect the sometimes horrified fascination that Caravaggio exerted on his contemporaries.

The Lives of Caravaggio. Book Format: Choose an option. Giovanni Pietro Bellori, Giulio Mancini, Giovanni Baglione.

In the course of a short and violent life, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio revolutionized painting, producing a style of shockingly immediate realism that swept through Europe and still resonates today. Almost everything we know about his life comes from these three early biographies, and they reflect the often horrified fascination that Caravaggio exerted on his contemporaries. Giorgio Mancini, his physician, underscored the value of Caravaggio’s revival of painting. Giovanni Baglione, a mediocre rival, is far less generous, but unable to hide his awe. The leading art historian of the following generation, Giovanni Pietro Bellori, produced a more balanced assessment, with detailed analyses of many of his major paintings. The Lives of Caravaggio is introduced by Helen Langdon, the leading expert on the painter, who elucidates the historical and artistic context of these biographies.
Reviews:
  • Tantil
This is a great little book that has collected all the writings about Caravaggio from three famous art historians of the 17th and 18th centuries (Mancini, Baglione and Bellori). Very handy as it has all the extracts from their own art histories in the one small volume; saving the reader the time, effort and money of looking for each of their individual books and then chasing down their comments on the favourite artist in their books. A nice little addition to any Caravaggio fan's collection - small enough to keep close to your heart!

Very pleased with the quality of this item. It had a few stickers remaining from its library days but they came off easily.
