Join Dr. James Callaghan for a wide-ranging series of conversations about four of the greatest masters of Italian Renaissance and Baroque painting - Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio, and Titian - plus the cities and regions that they lived and worked in.  Leveraging virtual technologies you will visit Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and the famous “Raphael Rooms” of Vatican City, follow the trail of spectacular – and controversial - paintings that Caravaggio left throughout the south of Italy while on-the-run from authorities, and marvel at the technical and stylistic innovations produced across the very long career of the Venetian master, Titian.  Along the way, you will discover how painters learned their craft and how paintings and frescoes (murals) were created, plus details of the genuinely fascinating lives of these four exceptional artists.  No previous knowledge of art history is required.  Espresso or cappuccino is optional but will further add to your enjoyment.
