Description
An aristocratic Roman family examines statues and decorative objects in the rear space of a shop selling household objects. At center, a slave presents a labrum, or basin, decorated with the sea-monster Scylla. Other objects include a marble statue of Agrippina, mother of Caligula, a bust of Pericles, a bronze of the infant Hercules strangling serpents, and various architectural decorations. The artist had examined and photographed many of the objects during his visits to Herculaneum and Pompeii in the 1860s, and they are recreated in the painting with archaeological precision.
