About this Event

An illustrated review of how the representations of the Bible's black women, Moses's Ethiopian wife and the Queen of Sheba and Ovid's black Andromeda, the daughter of the King of Ethiopia, have been handled in canonical western art by Titian, Veronese and others, how their images have became white, demonised or disappeared over time.
