Caravaggio is one of the painters I most admire. I have seen almost all the Caravaggio paintings in Rome, as two trips to Rome have focused on Caravaggio. I even saw the painting on the ceiling at the Casino Ludovisi. While some of this course concerned things I was familiar with, it was very professional and provided a lot of detail. I especially like how Dr. Magister explained her theory, which made perfect sense to me! I hope her book will be translated to English.
The lecturer was extremely knowledgeable about the artist, and made a very engaging and interesting presentation. I learned so much from the course, which exceeded my expectations.
Sara Magister is an excellent, enthusiastic, passionate and delightful instructor. I enjoyed every minute of her presentation. Am looking forward to attending more of her Context lectures, and eventually traveling back to Napoli and Roma to learn more about Caravaggio. Would be great to have Sara as a guide.
I wish the course were longer. Dr. Magister is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I wish the course we're many more sessions.
The 90 minutes go quickly. Sara is a true professional...and an expert who can explain complex subjects to us
