The Tarsi and John Georgas Family Gallery features a variety of aspects of Hellenistic art of the third through first centuries B.C. and their transmission to the Roman world. Hellenistic artists drew from the serene Classical ideal but also moved in new directions, reflecting the many contacts with various cultures after the conquests of Alexander the Great.
Wall paintings from a Roman villa at Boscoreale—some of which echo lost Hellenistic Macedonian royal paintings—and exquisite bronze sculptures provide an impression of the refined Classical environment that was cultivated, especially in private homes.
