Beyond Caravaggio: BSL introduction

Date and time

Friday 28 October, 6.30–7.30pm

Sainsbury Wing Information Desk

Russell Aldersson and Siân Walters


Admission free

Caravaggio was one of the most radical artists of his day. His work drew upon personal emotion and experience leading the drama which played out in his canvases to mirror real life experience.

While Caravaggio's paintings provoked criticism, they also drew great admiration and exerted a powerful impact on the art of his contemporaries and followers, both in Italy and beyond.

Join lecturer Sian Walters and BSL-interpreter Russell Aldersson for an introduction to Beyond Caravaggio's key themes and works.

Please note refreshments will be available at this talk.

BSL events

Throughout the year, free talks are given in British Sign Language by deaf lecturers or in spoken English with BSL interpretation.
