About The Book
This study focuses on three paintings done by Caravaggio for the two Mattei brothers — a cardinal and a marquis who shared the family palace and, for a time, had Caravaggio as a house guest. The Mattei family has been given short shrift in the literature about Caravaggio, which otherwise has rightly devoted great attention to his patrons. This context enriches our understanding of the paintings — the “Pastor Friso, ” often dubiously said to represent John the Baptist, the Supper at Emmaus in the London National Gallery, and the newly rediscovered Kiss of Judas in Dublin — then implicates wider contexts, including a comparative study of the artist’s most famous works, the Matthew cycle in the Contarelli chapel, and his other patrons, specifically Cardinal Del Monte.

A collector of classical sculpture, the Marquis is connected to the classical mythological themes that are here identified in specific paintings.

In its intellectual approach, Caravaggio and His Two Cardinals is a series of extended essays on diverse topics that involve the politics of Counter-Reformation religion and propaganda; neo-Latin poetry; the social status of homosexuality in the period; diale
