Now available on paperback, "Naked Truths" explores the portrayal of sexual difference and gender roles in Greco-Roman art and architecture. Applying a feminist approach to a wide range of classical works, this unique book offers a fresh new perspective on the art, history and culture of the ancient and modern world, including issues such as:
* the dynamics of female beauty and male violence in early Italian society * portrayals of nursing mothers in Etruscan and Greek art * * the nude cult status of the Knidian Aphrodite * Clytemnastra and the iconography of transgression * images of Sappho in Greek vase painting * mortal and divine sexuality in the Parthenon frieze * voyeuristic intercations inspired by the figure of the hermaphrodite * the role of desire and desirability in understanding sex and gender in the ancient world, and more.
