Honthorst and the Utrecht Caravaggisti


This paper will focus on the lives of the “Utrecht Caravaggisti”, discussing the biography of the artists in utrecht and how Caravaggio influenced them. Specifically the artists Dirck van Baburen, Hendrik Terbrugghen, and most importantly Gerrit van Honthorst. I want this paper to segway into the life of Honthorst and how he worked with the other artists in Utrecht and created a new era of art in the Dutch Golden Age. Make sure to include scholarly sources such as JStor and Oxford Art online.
