Roman fresco from Pompeii depicting painter
Roman fresco from Pompeii depicting painter

Roman fresco from Pompeii showing a painter making a portrait in the company of another woman.

Roman painting, unlike Roman architecture, is little known. For example, wall painting is known only from a few surviving examples and written records. Easel painting, which, although we know from the source texts was popular, has not survived completely to this day.
