Rembrandt and Caravaggio: two seminal names in the history of art, and two artists who, although they never met each other, are indissociable linked. This conversation will explore these two celebrated figures as together we analyze their similarities, differences, and peculiarities through a carefully curated selection of their artworks and personal stories.

Two major forces in the development of art, one from the deep catholic south of Europe, one from the protestant north, Caravaggio and Rembrandt are sources to be reckoned with. Based on the landmark Rijksmuseum exhibition of 2006 in Amsterdam, for which Sabry Amroussi has participated with research, this seminar will bring participants to the Rome of the late sixteenth and the bustling Amsterdam of the seventeenth century. Comparing key works of both artists, we will discuss the striking similarities, but also the differences between both giants of art.

This seminar is led by Sabry Amroussi, an Amsterdam-based art historian specializing in seventeenth-century art, and the most suitable expert to take participants by the hand, explaining what these artists stood for, in a seminar full of anecdotes, humor, and art-historical insights.

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and also has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects, and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection on Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.

This conversation is not suitable for children under age 16

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Excellent, as always

I can't imagine anything better than a Rembrandt and Caravaggio seminar, except if it's presented by Sabry. I'm an aficionado of both artists, so this was a treasure for me. Well done, as always!

Fabulous, scintillating, illuminating seminar

What an incredibly interesting and exciting seminar this was! Sabry's expertise on both Rembrandt and Caravaggio and his use of zoom-in technology to show us details of their paintings made for an incredibly fascinating and exciting presentation. I learned so much on so many levels... about each painter, about their technique, about their depiction of light in their paintings, about their influence on each other's work, and about other 'schools' or groups of painters influenced by them.
