Mary Beard, one of Britain's best-known Classicists, inaugurates the Gardner's new series, The Larger Conversation, which connects the Museum's collections and exhibitions to important social issues of our time. Focusing on Botticelli's Story of Lucretia, a work from the Museum's collection and a spotlight of our special exhibition, the lecture will cover the reception of Lucretia's disturbing story, from ancient Roman times to our own.
Mary Beard, Professor of Classics, Newnham College, Cambridge, author of the best-sellers Women & Power and SPQR.
