ART STORIES SERIES - Medici Maladies: Gout, Cannonballs, Murder and Syphilis in the Medici Family Tree

22 October 2019 - 18:30

by Jeremy Boudreau

 

Join Head of History of Art Jeremy Boudreau for the second installment of our Tuesday evening Art Stories fortnightly series, devoted to the underscored and often mysterious circumstances surrounding the ailments and eventual deaths of various members of the House of Medici, from the family’s founding fathers to their final most heroic endling: Anna Maria Luisa de Medici. Scandalous primary sources and recent forensic discovery will be held against one another as we try to get to the bottom of some rather tall tales!

 

The lecture will be followed by wine and snacks.
