Discover the secret world of Caravaggio


Caravaggio lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters.

Join leading art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon as he answers questions that have long puzzled scholars, such as his involvement in a fateful duel and the extraordinary circumstances of his own death.In this fascinating lecture, he reveals how Caravaggio created such drama, immediacy and humanity in his paintings, which depart from the conventions of his time.

Andrew Graham-Dixon is author of 'Caravaggio: A Life Sacred Profane', published in 2010 by Penguin books.
