Painted Windows



2nd Style Roman Painting c.40-30 B.C., The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Second style combines naturalistic scenes with architectural elements. Perspective was not fully developed for roughly 1500 years, so what the scenes lacked in realism they made-up for in creativity and imagination.

Reminds me of the frescoes at the ruins in Pompeii.
