Baroque Visuality between Perspective and the Photograph

In accounts of visuality, linear perspective is accorded a central role in explicating the aims and effects of Western art. Pan-European experiments with Caravaggism in the seventeenth century, however, produced a new type of image that operated outside the conventions of linear perspective and invoked widespread critical attack. The rapid foreclosure of Caravaggism thus constitutes a significant and revealing episode for probing the historical investments of the Western artistic tradition.

Estelle Lingo is a Professor in the Division of Art History at the University of Washington, specializing in early modern European art. She also holds the title of Donald E. Petersen Endowed Professor. This lecture is part of the Division of Art History Colloquia Series.
