Art History with Gary Faigin - The Bad Boy Who Rewrote Art History: The Art of Caravaggio
BIMA is pleased to partner with Kitsap Regional Library on their popular LIBRARY U program with three presentations in the BIMA Auditorium by Gary Faigin. Gary is the Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Gage Academy of Art, an artist, instructor educator, and author of The Artists Complete Guide to Facial Expression.
About this session:
Sublime master of realism inside the studio, incorrigible delinquent on the outside, the Baroque artist Caravaggio embodied contradiction. His spectacular paintings changed art history, but his violent personal life brought his career to an untimely end. Artist, critic and educator Gary Faigin will discuss why the art of Caravaggio had such an explosive impact on painters of his time, and how his familiarity with the violent world of the Roman street made his canvases so dramatic and so real.
