A Trip to the Walters Museum
Walters Museum today, her first trip. We moved at speed through several galleries, not lingering long over anything, and it was a fun way to tour the sweep of western art history.
Moving on through the classical rooms. These women, from about 450 BCE, are getting ready for the rites of Dionysus, in which they would psyche themselves up to the point that they could kill a goat with their bare hands and tear it apart. I love telling my students that.
