Intended for associations, schools or within the framework of corporate events, Hervé BONSARD leads three conferences regrouping his work and his research.

– Baroque painting: Its characteristics and its difference with the Renaissance and Classicism.

– The secrets of the workshop: The profession of Baroque painter, his apprenticeship, his tools and the materials used.

– Baroque painters: The characteristics of Spanish, Italian, Flemish, Dutch and French Baroque.



20 centuries apart, Polyclitus and Caravaggio represent a revolution in sculpture and painting with the similar intention of expressing humanism and emotion. 400 years after Caravaggio, Hervé BONSARD accepted to take up the challenge. Through his lectures you will understand the encounters he had to face to achieve this. You will discover the refined and wonderfully executed art of the Baroque painters.
