Talk and draw: Salome receives the Head of John the Baptist image

Lecturer Fiona Alderton and artist Bethan Durie explore Caravaggio’s ‘Salome receives the Head of John the Baptist’, currently featured in our exhibition ‘The Last Caravaggio’.
First, listen to a brief talk, then respond by making your own work in this short, artist-led drawing session. Please have to hand a sharp pencil, paper and a rubber.
The session will take place online and will last about one hour.
Sometimes we might suggest using different drawing or craft materials, so, if you are able to, please keep a pencil case of different colours, a ruler and a pair of scissors nearby, as well as anything else you might like to experiment with.
