Art History with a Twist – Inebriation in Western Art

Caravaggio,  Bacchus , 1595

Caravaggio, Bacchus, 1595

Inebriation in Western Art is the first lecture in the Art History with a Twist series. Marcy B. Freedman will use art from many different eras to explore depictions of the joys and perils of drinking alcohol.

Art History with a Twist is a series of one hour presentations that surveys masterpieces throughout art history, with a focus on subjects that have been categorized as both deviant and divine. Close examination of alcohol, dance, and bodily fluids in the context of art illustrate how the depiction of these acts is intrinsically connected to the politics and cultural values of the time.
