Star Artists of the 17th Century: Rembrandt, Caravaggio, and Bernini
This series of classes takes an in-depth look at the life and work of three European art geniuses: the Dutch master painter and printmaker Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), plus two of his Italian contemporaries, the painter Caravaggio (1571-1610), and the sculptor-architect Bernini (1598-1680). All three were immensely skilful and innovative artists whose lives, like their artworks, were full of drama and powerful emotions.
