Event Details

Join Chrissy Zappella, Blanton Fellow in European Art, as she unpacks the coded sexual and socio-political agendas of two paintings in the Blanton’s collection, Luca Cambiaso’s Suicide of Lucretia and Claude Vignon’s David with the Head of Goliath. This is our second “Old Masters/ Modern World” lecture, a series of talks that critically explores the continued relevance of centuries-old artworks to the lives of viewers today.

**This talk touches on adult themes, including that of sexual violence.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the talk. Our gallery talks can accommodate large groups, but we encourage you to check-in with our Visitor Services Desk to secure your place. Thursdays are free admission at the museum. The Blanton is located at the intersection of Congress Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Paid parking is available in the Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the museum.
