Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Lecture
Plotting the Roman Garden
Bettina Bergmann, Helene Phillips Herzig '49 Professor of Art History, Mount Holyoke College
Tracing key “plots” in the rediscovery of gardens on the Bay of Naples since the 19th century, this lecture tells the story of when and why the first garden plots were excavated, and how their reconstructions inspired narratives and visualizations of Roman daily life. Shaped by politics, garden archaeology is not ideology-free. Today’s tourists in Pompeii look through the ruined walls of houses and glimpse lush precincts that are far removed from the finds of archaeologists and the experiences of their original owners and inhabitants.
Reception to follow.
