‘The White Lotus’ Hotel’s Many Paintings Hint at Danger and Sexual Struggles Throughout Season 2

Season 2 of HBO’s The White Lotus abounds with suspense, sexual tension, and not-so-subtly placed replicas of famous artworks. Filmed at the San Domenico Palace in Taormina, Italy, the season follows a handful of guests staying at the hotel.
