"Three Masterpieces from the Age of Empires: Caravaggio, Velázquez, and Rubens Series"

Speaker:
Jerrilynn Dodds, Dean, Sarah Lawrence College

The Baroque period yielded some of the most vital and brilliant artists of all time. Opulent courts, powerful patrons, colliding cultures, strengthening religions, and increasingly complex politics provided the backdrop for painting to become a potent expression of the moment. This series explores a work from the Met's collection by each of three monumental figures of this remarkable age—Caravaggio, Velázquez, and Rubens. From different corners of Europe, these great masters provide three different interpretations of Baroque art.
