Richard Stemp will examine the revolutionary influence of Caravaggio in this special illustrated talk. It will reveal how, with their dramatic lighting and intense naturalism, Caravaggio's paintings inspired a multitude of artists during his lifetime and in the decades after his untimely death. 'Beyond Caravaggio' explores the impact of his work on artists as diverse as Gentileschi, Valentin and Honthorst, all of whom were drawn to his strikingly original paintings. Each absorbed a different aspect of his work, helping to propagate his style across Europe and giving rise to the international movement known as ‘Caravaggism’.
