Rostros de Maria: The Virgin as Archetype and Inspiration
This fall the San Antonio Museum of Art is featuring several exhibitions that encompass a common theme: love. From ancient Greece to modern times, visitors can view art that interprets love across cultures and through the ages.
The first female nude. The first kiss. Beauty, marriage, children, myth—Aphrodite played a leading role in all of it. Her story and image have been a vibrant part of Western art for more than 2,500 years. Aphrodite and the Gods of Love is the first exhibition to consider how visual representations of Aphrodite evolved across antiquity—an evolution that serves as a key to understanding her complex identity.
