Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. Join the acclaimed art critic, presenter and journalist Andrew Graham-Dixon as he shares his insights and analyses about the extraordinary talent inside this explosive, fated artist. The talk will be followed by a chance to meet Andrew and purchase a signed copy of his book.
Andrew will be celebrating 150 years of Bishops Stortford College by opening an exhibition of 150 works of art created by their very talented students. He will also give a wide ranging talk - playing biographer and detective as he discusses the work of Paul Nash, and then explores some of his favourite paintings from the many different corners of the history of art.
This is a talk for the Princes Teaching Institute - a wonderful organisation supporting and enthusing teachers and students to further their experience.
“Great art, great architecture, great coffee and cake and the birthplace of psychoanalysis to boot! Vienna is one of my favourite cities and I’m greatly looking forward to joining you there.”
Andrew is looking forward to presenting another talk in Lincoln for the Great Lives series.
