Seminar Abroad - HSEM 3013: Caravaggio: Bad Boy of the Baroque

November 9, 2017

This seminar explores the life and art of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610), one of the most arresting and controversial painters in the history of art.  Our examination will range from issues of style and self-portraiture to questions of biography, patronage, and iconography.  During Spring break (March 9-18, 2018), we will travel to Rome--where Caravaggio spent the majority of his career--to study the painter's works in their original context, to walk the streets Caravaggio walked, and to immerse ourselves in the painter's life and art.
