Who is history’s greatest painter? It may be impossible to find consensus on this question, but two artists who could most credibly claim the title are Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) and Diego Velázquez (1599-1660). This two-session course will feature some of the best works by both of these artists, revealing similarities in their technical achievements as well as their philosophies about art. The lecture will show how both artists developed styles of painterly realism rooted in direct observation; additionally, major works by these artists will be juxtaposed to demonstrate how both realized the dramatic potential of carefully orchestrated light and shadow.
