Our weekly meetings will probe Caravaggio's revolutionary paintings in terms of their style, radical naturalism, iconography, patronage, cultural context, contemporary critical reception, and question how to reconcile his towering artistic achievement in Catholic Rome with his scandalous, profane and violent life.
