Description - Painting with Demons: The Art of Gerolamo Savoldo by Michael Fried

Michael Fried casts his acute gaze on the extraordinary Renaissance painter Gerolamo Savoldo

The achievements of Italian Renaissance painter Giovanni Gerolamo Savoldo were, even during a period of unprecedented artistry, out of the ordinary. Born in Brescia around 1480, he radically reimagined Christian subjects. His surviving oeuvre of roughly fifty paintings - from the intensely poetic Tobias and the Angel to sober self-portraits - represents some of the most profound work of the period. 

In Painting with Demons, a beautifully illustrated book and the first in English devoted to the painter, Michael Fried brings his celebrated skills of looking and thinking to bear on Savoldo's art, providing a stunning contribution to our understanding both of the early modern European imagination and of the achievement of this under appreciated artist.
