On Caravaggio ...

I tend to shy away from reading about art extensively. John Berger is great, and I remember enjoying Otto Freidrich's book, Olympia: Paris in the Age of Manet some 15 years ago. Yet this three-part series in the Guardian on Caravaggio is well written, intriguing and absent the offputting jargon that many an art writer falls prey to.

Caveat lector- you shouldn't open the link if you have dinner plans or an appointment any time soon. It's a long, engrossing read. Here.
