Caravaggio in Exile

Forced to leave Rome after killing Ranuccio Tomassoni, Caravaggio fled first to Naples, then to Malta and Sicily. Jones Gallery curator Sarah Jones looks at Caravaggio’s late works, completed while in exile between 1606 and his death in 1610.

Hieronymus Bosch & The Garden of Earthly Delights

A close look at Hieronymus Bosch’s famous triptych in this art history talk with gallery curator, Sarah Jones.

Gambolling sinners engaging in orgiastic fantasies, strange and exotic animals, a hellscape with bewildering and nightmarish figures. Oh boy. We also talk about the range of interpretations art historians have posited for this enigmatic work, and also more broadly about Bosch’s role in the Northern Renaissance.

A bit of garden-variety debauchery to get us through the winter.
