- A lavishly illustrated and comprehensive study of Mattia Preti’s art and of the context in which it has been produced. His life and work are discussed within the mechanics of patronage and him being an artist knight. The book, which includes 360 photographs, provides the fullest catalogue list to date of paintings attributed to him, and, based on archival research, technical considerations and stylistic study, it gives a suggested chronology for his entire oeuvre.
