Sex and Scandal at the Highest Level – Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” in Art



When first-century poet Latin poet Ovid composed his “Metamorphoses”, can he have realised that this epic compendium of Classical myths would become the inspiration for countless artistic representations of (culturally acceptable) amorous exploits down the centuries? With examples ranging from Mediaeval manuscript illumination to Victorian Academic painting, Post-Impressionism and surprising modern variants, this talk explores how the sensational and bizarre mythology of the loves of the Olympian gods has been interpreted across different schools and periods of art.
