Violence against women – whether rape or abduction – is central to the subject matter of Titian’s poesie, or “painted poetries.” Renowned art historian, Cambridge classicist, and best-selling author Mary Beard will unpack the history of these troubling stories, their origins in Antiquity, their centrality to this series of Renaissance mythologies, and their relevance today.
