    This lecture examines the process of creating frescoes, including how artists made the pigments, laid out their designs, replicated figures and, at times, made near-exact copies of the same composition. The Painters of Pompeii includes instances of multiple versions of the same subject, inviting speculation on how artists used sketchbooks to create multiple versions of a composition in circulation among painters and their workshops!
