Andrew Graham-Dixon – Caravaggio, A Life Sacred and Profane, 22 octobre 2016 19:00, Bishop’s Palace & Gardens

His art continues to inspire to this day, but his life was one of tremendous violence, where brawls and swordfights were regular occurrences. Many of the great painters of the time inhabited this dark world of cardinals and whores, prayer and violence but Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived most dangerously of them all. Andrew Graham-Dixon, a leading figure in British broadcasting who has published a weekly art column for 25 years, pieces together the scraps of evidence left from the artist’s life and answers questions that have long puzzled scholars. Exploring the drama, immediacy and humanity of Caravaggio’s paintings, Graham-Dixon explains how the painter created his enduring masterpieces against the brutal backdrop of a life cut short by vice and viciousness
