CDR-1342: SR Set: Wall Painting in Antiquity

Wall painting in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome was distinctive to each culture, but moving from one culture to another through the centuries the flow of style and design moves gracefully from the earliest Old Kingdom tomb paintings to the lush interiors at Pompeii and Herculaneum frozen in time in Mount Vesuvius' 79 CE eruption. The formal Egyptian canon varied little for nearly three thousand years yet was to be adapted and enriched in Minoan frescoes, the forerunners of a freer Greek style of painting we see in the later adaptations of Roman painters. Egyptian wall painting was done directly on limestone or on a coat of dried plaster; unlike the Minoan and later Roman wall paintings which were worked in true fresco form in wet plaster. In this set Roman wall paintings are divided into the four styles described by August Mau in the 19th century; while some of our Egyptian examples are facsimiles by Egyptologists Norman and Nina Davies and Charles K. Wilkinson done in the early Twentieth century. Nov/2014
