A lecture by Professor Mary Jacobus (CRASSH, University of Cambridge).

Respondent: Simon Goldhill (Classics, University of Cambridge)

The theme of war in paintings like Twombly’s Fifty Days at Iliam reveals how martial art becomes polemical in making the destructiveness of the past visible to contemporary viewers.

Professor Simon Goldhill will respond, comparing Twombly’s classicism with that of another modern artist, Andy Warhol.
