Andrew Graham-Dixon: The double life of Caravaggio
Sat June 9, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST
Inhabiting a dark and dangerous world of sex, violence and religion, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio still managed to create some of the greatest paintings in the history of art – despite himself and his circumstances.
Art critic, historian, award-winning broadcaster, author and expert on Caravaggio, Andrew Graham-Dixon tells us a part of the artist’s tempestuous tale whilst illuminating something of his immense genius.
Writing regularly for the Sunday Telegraph, presenter of BBC2’s The Culture Show plus several popular series and numerous documentaries on art for the BBC, author of numerous acclaimed books on art and sculpture from medieval times to the present, we are privileged to have Andrew come to talk to us about his painstaking research into the life and tragic early death of Caravaggio.
“Graham-Dixon conveys the force of Caravaggio’s personality and the consequences of his art with a brilliant grasp of detail. After years in which art historians have concentrated on the minutiae of artistic style, it is refreshing to read a biography of Caravaggio that combines the blood and guts of Rome’s backstreets with a real understanding of the quality and character of his paintings.” Charles Saumarez Smith, The Telegraph.
