Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
When taking a Context walking tour of Caravaggio in Rome, I was struck by the striking similar style between Caravaggio and the Dutch. But found nothing really on the subject in Rome. (Hint to the Roman guides)
In this lecture, Alette Fletcher answers this question on how Vermeer and Rembrandt’s art absorbed the light of Caravaggio. The Dutch embraced the common man depicted in Caravaggio art. This lecture is like completing a puzzle. Do not miss this excellent lecture. When you visit Rome, it will all come together.
Alette did a wonderful job researching and presenting this talk on Dutch artists. It was very interesting!
Good talk on well-chosen topic
