Ett stycke pompejansk receptionshistoria
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The article presents the reception of Pompeian interior design in Sweden and Stockholm. It follows the settings chosen for this kind of art from the late 18th century up to the 1920s. The difference between models available (aquarelles made by Swedish architects in Pompeii in the 19th century) and models used (preferably from the house of the Vettii) is touched upon. The decorated spaces and the contents of chosen motifs reveal a strong desire to use the Pompeian repertoire as a means to enrich popular imagination and stress confidence in modernity.
