Caravaggio: The Cursed Painter

August 1 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

$30 – $35

Italian painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio helped revolutionize 16th century painting, but was also known as the pittore maledetto, or the cursed painter. He had a love of violence, brothels, and taverns, which informed his art. Today, however, some refer to the painter as a sociopath. Rocky Ruggiero, a specialist in the Early Renaissance, discusses Caravaggio’s works, his personal demons, and the connection.
