Lennox Lecture: Rachel Foulk

Classical Studies presents the Spring 2023 Trinity University Lennox Seminar: Roman Landscapes – Art, Nature, and Myth

Patron’s Tomb: Landscape, Family, and Legacy in Roman Art - Presented by Rachel Foulk, Professor of Art History at Ferris State University 

The Tomb of Patron, a first-century BCE tomb in Rome now featured in the San Antonio Museum of Art’s exhibition, utilizes landscape to deny the darkness of death. This presentation examines the lush garden imagery of Patron’s tomb alongside the Ara Pacis Augustae to explore how landscapes evoke the regenerative powers of nature and express hope for the longevity of Roman families.

Wednesday, April 12 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm
