Following the monographs on the paintings from the house of Augustus and Livia's villa, this is the third masterpiece of roman painting from the time of Augustus

One of the most respected scholars in the field of painting from the classical era takes a look at the amazing cycle of frescoes from the villa discovered in the gardens of the Farnesina on the banks of the Tiber in the 19th century.
The frescoes and plasterwork from the rooms have now been reconstructed in the Roman National Museum, and represent the most extensive and best preserved examples of paintings from the Augustan age, illustrating the trends of the time, which stood out for refined technique and the range of colours and subjects used, as the large, accurate illustrations in this volume finally allow us to appreciate.
