SPECIAL TOPIC WINTER 2020: THE TWO MICHELANGELOS

Did you know there were two Michelangelos? The celebrated Florentine sculptor, painter, and architect Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) and Michelangelo Merisi, the famous Milanese painter known to the world as Caravaggio (1571-1610). This new course will be co-taught by Professors Stuart and Estelle Lingo and will introduce you to the art of these two Michelangelos. By putting their careers in historical context, we will explore the challenges and ambitions that shaped their revolutionary works, with special attention to Caravaggio's artistic dialogue with his namesake and predecessor.
