Age of the Baroque

Age of the Baroque

“The story of the Age of Baroque is a tale of today. To examine the 17th Century is to reveal the 21st — two centuries united by tribalism, sectarianism, and acquiescence to unreasoning power. We shall explore this dynamic period through the lens of its greatest artists.” Host Linda Blair has lectured on diverse topics in European art history for many years, primarily on the East Coast. The January 22 lecture covers Caravaggio, whose death results in one of the oddest DNA investigations in Western art.
