No other woman in history has fired up the imagination like Cleopatra: powerful ruler, seductive mistress, and mother of royal children. She captivated Caesar and Mark Anthony, the two most powerful Romans of their time, and took her own life because of the third, Augustus. In this volume, Bernard Andreae argues that the famous antique statue of the Esquiline Venus portrays none other than Cleopatra VII herself and is an exact copy of the statue of Cleopatra that formed part of the temple to Venus consecrated by Caesar in 46 BC. In addition to a comparison of the Esquiline Venus to other contemporary sculptures, the volume also includes a study of the portrayal of Cleopatra in the art of the 16th19th centuries, images and scenes that govern the popular views of this female pharaoh until this day.
