“What we know of Cagnacci’s biography has been narrated by Xavier F. Salomon in a readable, endearing catalogue produced by the Frick in conjunction with Scala Arts Publishers in honor of the occasion. This gold-stamped, cloth-covered, novella-sized volume, generously illustrated with matte color plates, is itself a minor masterpiece of art publishing.”
—Franklin Einspruch, The New Criterion (Jan. 5, 2017)

The first book in English devoted to Cagnacci in almost thirty years was published in conjunction with the presentation of the Repentant Magdalene, a loan from the Norton Simon Museum. An essay by Xavier F. Salomon examines Cagnacci's life and his eccentric work, providing an overview of his astonishing artistic achievements.
