CARAVAGGIO IS NOT THE ONLY ARTIST:
A STUDY OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES AND THEIR VARIED RESPONSE TO HIS REVOLUTIONARY ART
Caravaggio’s influence on the new baroque style that emerged from mannerism was profound. It can be seen directly or indirectly in the work of Peter Paul Rubens, Jusepe de Ribera, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Rembrandt and artists in the following generation heavily under his influence were called the “Caraggivisti (or “Caravagesques”), as well as tenebrists or tenebrosi (“shadowists”).
The lecturer on this occasion is Chantal Brotherton-Radcliffe
She has taught at Sotheby’s Institute of Art since 1989 on their MA in Fine and Decorative Arts. Also trained as a paintings conservator.
