Caravaggio: The volatile life of the 17th-century painter re-imagined through his brilliant near-blasphemous paintings and flirtations with the Roman underworld. Wittgenstein: 'Portrait of the irreverent 20th-century philosopher who preferred detective fiction and Carmen Miranda musicals to Aristotle.'
