The object of beauty
Love, desire and yearning sizzle through the hallways of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts this winter where the “Aphrodite and the Gods of Love” exhibition pays homage to the fiery and furious goddess of love.
The display of 170 Greek and Roman works of art, including thirteen significant loans—nine from Italian museums—will take visitors on a five-thousand-year trek from the deity’s birth from the foamy waters of Kythera.
