ARTH 357 - Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi


FDR: HA
Credits: 3

This seminar focuses on the work of Baroque painters Caravaggio (1573-1610) and Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-ca. 1653). We explore Caravaggio's intense naturalism and the controversy it caused, his sense of drama, and supernatural light. Gentileschi was deeply influenced by Caravaggio but developed her own unique style. Seminar themes include the 1612 rape trial and its impact on Gentileschi's career, issues of attribution, and proto-feminism. Lepage.
