HAMMOND – The third lecture in the series “Let’s Talk: Art,” sponsored jointly
by Southeastern Louisiana University’s Department of Visual Art + Design and the Friends
of Sims Library, will be held Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 5 p.m. Free and open to the public,
the lecture is scheduled at the Contemporary Art Gallery on Southeastern’s campus.
Southeastern senior art history major Melissa Miller will present “Titian’s Venus of Urbino: New Interpretations.”
“The Venus of Urbino, which hangs in Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, depicts a nude woman reclining on a couch or bed in a luxurious Renaissance palace,” said Sims Library Director Eric Johnson. “This talk is an in-depth analysis of Titian’s masterpiece, and based on his symbolism and other portraits, it reveals a new idea about Titian’s women in the sixteenth century.”
