Beyond Caravaggio, by Richard Stemp - Sold out
Talk | National Gallery
Monday 24 October 2016 - 14:00 until 15:00
Richard Stemp will examine the revolutionary influence of Caravaggio in this special illustrated talk. It will reveal how, with their dramatic lighting and intense naturalism, Caravaggio’s paintings inspired a multitude of artists as diverse as Gentileschi, Valentin, and Honthorst, all of whom were drawn to his strikingly original paintings. Each absorbed a different aspect of his work, helping to propagate his style across Europe and giving rise to the international movement known as ‘Caravaggism’.
