Join fellow art and book lovers for a discussion of Andrew Graham-Dixon's seminal biography, Caravaggio: a Life Sacred and Profane. This discussion is intended to complement The Brilliance of Caravaggio: Four Paintings in Focus

From the publisher's website: "Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. This commanding biography explores Caravaggio’s staggering artistic achievements, his volatile personal trajectory, and his tragic and mysterious death at age thirty-eight. Featuring more than eighty full-color reproductions of the artist’s best paintings, Caravaggio is a masterful profile of the mercurial painter."

This event is free, but registration is required. To register, please email or call 419-254-5770, and provide your nameemail address and phone number.

NOTE: In registering for this discussion, you are eligible to attend a special curator-led tour of The Brilliance of Caravaggio: Four Paintings in Focus on Friday, February 2nd, from 5:30-6:30pm. Curator Emeritus Larry Nichols will lead the group through the exhibition himself - a rare treat! You will be responsible for acquiring your own ticket to the exhibition at one of the Visitor Experience desks (Herrick Lobby, Libbey Court) or outside of the exhibition itself, at the kiosk.
