Lecture no. 29 from the course: A History of European Art
Taught by Professor William Kloss | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
You focus on a single artist of the Catholic Counter-Reformation, Caravaggio. Briefly outlining his scandalous life, the lecture shows why critics are confounded by his sexual undertones and profound reverence for sacred subjects. He is also noted for his distinctive treatment of light and dark.
