Will the Real Salomé Please Stand Up?

Salomé, the dancing girl who callously bargained for the beheading of John the Baptist, has captivatingly threaded her way through history in art, literature and opera. This ancient femme fatale, the subject of Ella Ferris Pell’s Salomé (1890), recently exhibited at the Timken, is fascinating to examine historically.

Join Timken Docent and USD Professor of Biblical Studies Dr. Florence Gillman for virtual talks about the actual people who have inspired some of the Timken’s masterpieces.
