Join us for this free lecture via Zoom in which art historian and television personality, Rocky Ruggiero, will reveal the fascinating relationship between contemporary artist Frank Stella and Baroque artist Caravaggio. The immediacy of Caravaggio’s theatrical picture spaces marked a turning point in the history of European painting, and also inspired a “new pictoriality” the work of Stella and other modern abstract artists. Ruggiero will examine Caravaggio’s revolutionary art and its impact on the art of the 17th and 20th centuries.
