FREE WEBINAR | “Caravaggio – Wanted Dead or Alive”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
On May 29, 1606, Caravaggio stabbed and killed a man on Via della Scrofa in Rome. Wanted for murder, he immediately fled the city and spent the last four years of his life as a fugitive on the run. He went first to Naples, then traveled to Malta, Sicily, and then back to Naples again. While making his way back to Rome in 1610 after receiving a papal pardon from Pope Paul V, Caravaggio died from unknown causes. This free webinar examines those works that Caravaggio produced during this dramatic time of his life and that define his late career, as well as the murky details surrounding the mysterious death of the artist.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
