Mattia Preti: Life And Works
The book examines Mattia Preti’s art and studies the context in which it was produced. It researches his life and his work, discusses the mechanics of patronage and analyses the complications of his exceptional life as an artist knight. It provides the fullest catalogue to date of paintings are attributed to him – a number of which are hitherto unpublished – and, based on archival research, technical and stylistic study, it attempts to provide a chronology for his entire oeuvre.
