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!
