M: The Man Who Became Caravaggio by Peter Robb is an engrossing biography of the violent, passionate, provocative artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. He lived a short, turbulent but productive life (1571-1610), shocking the art and church establishments by using his lovers - young boys and female prostitutes - as models for his groundbreaking portrayals of religious and classical subjects as living people. Robb uses the few existing facts about the artist as well as his own interpretations of the paintings to create a highly readable, melodramatic biography of this innovative, iconoclastic artist. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
