Julien Domercq, the DMA’s Lillian and James H. Clark Assistant Curator of European Art, will begin the evening by discussing Caravaggio’s painting Martha and Mary Magdalene (c. 1598), on loan from the Detroit Institute of Arts and currently on view at the DMA. Andrew Graham-Dixon will then talk about his acclaimed biography Caravaggio: A Life Sacred and Profane, which was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize for nonfiction and was a New York Times Notable Book. Graham-Dixon is one of the leading art critics and presenters of arts television in the English-speaking world.
Before the event, enjoy after hours access to see the Caravaggio painting.
