THE ARTS SOCIETY KENNET AND SWINDON (TASKS)
 
CARAVAGGIO - MURDERER OR GENIUS?

a lecture by

Julia Musgrave

 

Monday, 20 January 2020 - at the Ellendune Centre, Wroughton.

Coffee served from 10 00a.m. - the meeting begins promptly at 11 00a.m.

 

Michelangelo Meresi di Caravaggio was at one and the same time a most influential and controversial artist.

His unique portrayal of ordinary people and his ability to capture light and shade inspired

many contemporary artists, including  Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt & many others.

 Yet for many he is as much famed for his violent lifestyle & criminal record as for his art.

Was it the violence of the times or the turbulence of his own wayward spirit

which inspired the dramatic lighting & intense naturalism of his work?

This lecture follows the many incidents in the artist’s life

and explores the reasons why his influence spread so far.
The lecturer: Julia Musgrave gained her first degree in chemical engineering & embarked

on a career as a chartered information systems engineer and IT project manager.

In 2008 she decided to change career & became an art historian.

She gained a graduate diploma in the history of art from the Courtauld Institute  

and an MLitt from the University of Glasgow.

She is currently working towards her PhD at the University of York.
