- See thirty-five frescoes from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples.
- Discover these important works as paintings representing dynamic mythological scenes, inviting landscapes, sumptuous still lifes, astonishing trompe-l’oeil, captivating portraits, and energetic genre scenes.
- This exhibition presents an exciting opportunity to learn about ancient painting, the tastes and values of the Romans who lived with these works, as well as the techniques used by the artists who created them.
- Seldom exhibited outside Italy, these remarkably well-preserved frescoes invite us to see beyond the ashes of the tragic city, and instead experience the vibrant world of the ancient Roman home as the Pompeians themselves knew it.
