20th Century to Today

Comment: Cleopatra's image continues to fascinate, even as portrayals both broaden in context and lose connection to the canonical texts and scenes—the "image" generates images, not the literary background. Some trends:

  • There's a lot more bric-a-brac.
  • Although the 17-19th century images are more risque, I have left out some images that are a bit more than that…
  • There are a lot of kids in Haloween costumes, but these have been sequested into the Dress Up! section
