The AFA is pleased to provide this before-hours, curator-led tour of Pompeii in Color at the NYU Institute for the Study of the Ancient World with Rachel Herschman, Assistant Curator.
Pompeii in Color: The Life of Roman Painting presents thirty-five frescoes from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. 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 Pompeiians themselves knew it.
