Caravaggio: A Life Sacred and Profane

Details

  • Category: Theatre

Full Description

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. The worlds of Milan, Rome and Naples through which Caravaggio moved are those of cardinals and whores, prayer and violence. 

Having spent over a decade piecing together the scraps of evidence left of Caravaggio’s life Andrew Graham-Dixon answers questions that have long puzzled scholars about the extraordinary talent inside this explosive, fated artist. His insights and analyses will form the basis of his lecture.

Andrew Graham-Dixon is one of the leading art critics and presenters of arts television in the English-speaking world. He has presented numerous landmark series on art for the BBC and other independents, including the acclaimed A History of British Art, Renaissance, Italy Unpacked, and most recently the Story of the Royal Collection. For more than twenty years he has published a weekly column on art, first in the Independent and, more recently, in the Sunday Telegraph. He has also written a number of acclaimed books, on subjects ranging from medieval painting and sculpture to the art of the present.

The evening will comprise of a talk by Andrew on the fascinating life and art of Caravaggio, followed by a book signing in the café bar, where you can meet Andrew in person. (Books will be available to purchase on the night.)
