Hugh Taft-Morales

Leader, Philadelphia Ethical Society

While enjoying the aesthetic brilliance of Italian Renaissance art this summer, Hugh was struck by the many representations of violence between men and women. In light of the Supreme Court’s attack on women’s bodily integrity, we must understand the dynamics that fuel this violence: both the oppression of women and the backlash it creates. Hugh seeks insights from four Renaissance artworks: Bernini’s The Rape of Proserpina and Apollo and Daphne, Caravaggio’s Judith Beheading Holofernes, and Artemisia Gentileschi’s Judith and Holofernes.
