The course is devoted to the revolutionary paintings of Italian artist Caravaggio (1571-1610), and the immense impact which he had on subsequent art. Beginning with a detailed look at the work of Caravaggio himself, we proceed to examine his influence on Italian, Dutch, French and Spanish artists during the first half of the seventeenth century (e.g. from Italy – Artemisia and Orazio Gentileschi; from the Netherlands – Honthorst and ter Brugghen; from France – Valentin and La Tour; from Spain -Ribera). Issues addressed include the nature of Caravaggesque “realism”, the uses of “chiaroscuro”, and the idiosyncracies of Caravaggesque iconography. For further information please see course guide.
