The Art of Wine: The Wine of Caravaggio's Italy
The great—and notorious—painter Caravaggio spent his life and career in Italy, ranging from the north, where he was born and first worked, to Rome, where he skyrocketed to fame and became the bad boy, rock-star artist of his day. In this event, you'll enjoy an evening that combines art and wine, beginning with a tour of the exhibition, introduced by LACMA educator and art historian Mary Lenihan, followed by a tasting of six Italian wines that mirror Caravaggio's Italian journey from north to south. Each of the wines will be paired with a specially chosen antipasti. With wine historian Barbara Baxter.
