Pompeii Fresco

Pompeii Fresco

I finally made it to the Pompeii exhibition (Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum) at the British Museum.

Pompeii Lady - Copy of Fresco
Acrylic on canvas paper 7 * 10 inches

There was so much to see about the daily lives of people who lived in these two cities including wall paintings and furniture.  There were also a couple of victim casts 🙁

I bought a little book published by the British Museum for the exhibition, Art in Pompeii and Herculaneum, which features one of my favourite pieces – a fresco of Flora, goddess of flowers and Spring – which I made a copy of.
