A Timeless Love Story

February 9, 2012 § Leave a comment

Amid a classical setting of columns, arches and Caryatids, a spectacular drama is taking place in the first century BC. It is painted by Gerard Lairesse. The Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, is about to remove her second pearl earring and subject it to the same fate as the first – dissolve it in vinegar and drink it. With this she would have won a bet with her lover, the Roman leader Mark Antony. She had wagered that she could give a feast for ten million sestertia. Lucius Plancus stops her dissolving the earring.
