Chrissy Zappella will have an in-depth discussion of two mythological paintings that uses historical context as well as technical and stylistic examination to analyze themes of gender and sexual politics in the ancient, early-modern, and contemporary world. This is the first “Old Masters/ Modern World” lecture, a series of talks that critically explore the continued relevance of centuries-old artworks to the lives of viewers today.

This talk touches on themes of sexual violence against women. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the talk.
