‘Caravaggio and Rome around 1600’
Babylon Gallery, Waterside, Ely CB7 4AU
£25 (£30 including lunch)
10am - 4pm. Coffee served from 9.30am.
The dramatic, passionate and violent narratives that describe Caravaggio’s life originated in his lifetime and are perpetuated in modern scholarship. As a consequence his works are often understood through autobiography. This study day will evaluate these narratives and analyse Caravaggio’s paintings in their historical context. We will consider the stylistic conventions of naturalism and classicism, look at the wider artistic community in Rome around 1600 and see how Caravaggio’s followers interpreted his works.
Kasja Berg is a freelance art historian and administrator who recieved a great response to her first Study Day here at Babylon ARTS earlier this year.
