Pompeii in EstoniaThe walls of University of Tartu Art Museum were decorated with imitations of the original Pompeian mural paintings. Imitations of Pompeian mural paintings were highly fashionable at that time all over Europe, especially in Germany with whom Tartu was in close contact. The mural paintings in Univeristy of Tartu Art Museum were done by local painter F. Redlin after Johann K. Zahn's print album. In addition to Zahn's lithographic prints, the prints from Charles F. Mazois's album 'Les ruines de Pompéi' are displayed at the exhibition, as well as works from the collections of University of Tartu Art Museum and Art Museum of Estonia.
