Titel onderzoek: Hellenism on the Wall: Experiencing Pompeian Second-Style Paintings in a Globalising World

Werkzaam bij het KNIR: 03 May - 31 May 2024


Universiteit: Leiden University

I research the emergence and impact of the Second-Style murals of Roman houses (first century BCE)⁠. These paintings began to include a wide array of objects/scenes that circulated in the Hellenistic world and were imported into Rome⁠. The Roman republic had become a pivotal player in this oikouménē, and I aim to explore how these murals are part of a process of globalisation and helped the viewer to come to grips with this new social reality.
