Yet for many, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is famed as much for his criminal record as for his art.

This lecture follows the dramatic incidents of the artist’s life and looks at why and how his influence spread so far. Non-members are welcome to attend at a cost of £8 per lecture. Students are admitted for a nominal charge of £3.
