Mosaic pavement Regarding Fig. No. 7: The oldest is a painting found in one of the subterranean chambers in the garden of the Villa Pamfili in Rome ; it is a fresco representing asatyricor comic scene, probably the flight of a Bacchante from adrunken Faun. The nuptial celebration, [in the engraving below] is of great antiquarian value, and is one of the finest fresco paintings that have come down to us from antiquity; it was found under Pope Clement III. not far from the Arch of Oallienus, near Santa Maria Maggiore and the Baths of Titus, and has been called after the villa Aldobrandini, where it was afterwards preserved, " the Aldrobrandini 'Wedding.' This fresco is now in the Museum of the Vatican. Winckelmann explains it to be the wedding of eleus and Thetis, at which the goddesses of the Seasons or three Muses are singing and playing the epithalamium. The bride seated on the torus is exhorted by Aphrodite or Peithoto receive the bridegroom who is waiting on the threshold. A charis stands ready to anoint her. In the back part of the chamber the bride's bath is preparing. Zoega and Heinrich Meyer perceive in the figures portrayed only ordinary mortals, and consider, no doubt correctly, that the whole is simply a representation of the Greek wedding ceromonials. The figures are rather more than two palms high, and are painted very lightly, and thinly but with a fine feeling for harmony and the force of colors. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
