Monsu Desiderio was the 17th century art enigma whose epic and phantasmic canvases are now believed to be the collaborative work of two or more Naples-based artists, principally Francois de Nome. De Nome/Desiderio’s hallucinatory paintings of biblical, historical and architectural scenes are marked by vast, decadent edifices which dwarf his human figures, who are often engaged in savage acts of cruelty and carnage mirrored in a mise-en-scene of ruination or imminent destruction. This special ebook collection of key works by Monsu Desiderio features over 40 full-colour paintings, including all of his best-known and most delirious masterpieces such as “The Head of St. John the Baptist Presented to Salome†, “The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrha†, and “St. John the Evangelist Being Boiled in a Cauldron†.
