  • "L. Richardson, Jr., has had a long and distinguished career writing about Roman art and architecture, particularly that of Pompeii and its environs. In this newest work, he attributes many of the surviving wall decorations to particular painters. It is a catalog in the true sense, grouping the pictures by style and then by painter. Richardson describes the salient characteristics of a painter's work and then inventories the pictures he attributes to that painter, together with cross-references to other catalogs and sources of good reproduction. The book will serve as a valuable resource for specialists in classics and art history, as well as a unique guide for intellectually adventurous tourists visiting the Museo Nazionale at Naples and the sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae."--BOOK JACKET.
