17 May 2021 - The Master of Light and Shadow by Shirley Smith


Join Betchworth Fine Arts Society
on Monday 17th May 2021 at 2.30pm for
Caravaggio: The Master of Light and Shadow by Shirley Smith

 

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was a man out of step with his time. Scorning the traditional idealised interpretation of religious subjects, he took his models from the streets, painting them realistically and heightening the emotional intensity by his dramatic contrasts of light and shade. Such a revolutionary style was condemned by many as was his equally dramatic personal life and uncontrollable temper which involved him in endless brawls and even murder. This lecture will study the life and works of this enigmatic man and of his influence on later artists.Since the birth of the earliest human civilisations, dance has been an important part of ceremony, rituals, celebrations, a method of healing and a means of expression and entertainment.

Our lecturer, –Shirley Smith, graduated from the University of East Anglia with a first class honours degree in the History of Art, specialising in the Italian and Northern Renaissance. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a part-time lecturer for the University of East Anglia and for the Department of Continuing Education of the University of Cambridge

The lecture is free for members – do come as a visitor for £5. All you need is a PC, laptop or tablet, a comfy chair and your favourite tipple!

To book your place please email Pat Frankland or call Pat on 01737 842028.
