As recorded by the likes of Ovid and Livy, Lucretia was raped by Tarquinius Sextus, son of the Etruscan King of Rome. Her consequent suicide incited a revolution that toppled the monarchy and ultimately gave rise to the Roman Republic. Debuted in 1946, The Rape of Lucretia is a haunting and deeply human tale draped in gilded history.
