Item description for The Villa of the Mysteries of Pompeii: Ancient Ritual, Modern Muse by Elaine K. Gazda...

In 1924 Italian artist Maria Barosso painted a large-scale watercolor replica of the fresco cycle found in Room 5 in the Villa of the Mysteries in Pompeii. This magnificent representation of the Pompeian cycle is the source of inspiration for this book, which examines how scholars and artists through time have responded to the fresco, and provides an understanding of its origins, iconography, and function. Not only does it explore the role of women in ancient Rome, in both the domestic and religious spheres; it also brings to the forefront the dynamic role that art can play in society, both ancient and modern. The inspiration modern artists have drawn from the ancient frescoes, and the ways in which they have chosen to transform and enhance their timeless themes, speak to the power of art to evoke responses far beyond the intent of the original artist.
