Classical Studies presents the Spring 2023 Trinity University Lennox Seminar: Roman Landscapes – Art, Nature, and Myth
“Trees and their Messages in the Roman Landscape” - Presented by Bettina Bermann, Professor Emeritus of Art History at Mt. Holyoke College
She has published numerous essays on Roman villas, houses, and wall paintings in the excavated sites around the Bay of Naples; on their rediscovery, reconstruction, and modern reception; and on representations of women, myth, and on the art of ancient landscape and gardens.
This lecture explores the many roles that trees played in Roman culture, from domestic decoration to religious divination.
