The article discusses the series of paintings from the two cubicula flanking the triclinium of Villa della Farnesina in Rome, an aristocratic palace, representing couples on klinai in richly decorated surroundings, never explicitly in sexual positions. The Author sees in such images a strong Hellenistic background and adhesion to earlier Greek motifs, underlining luxury and the pleasures of life in general.

Abstract

The article discusses the series of paintings from the two cubicula flanking the triclinium of Villa della Farnesina in Rome, an aristocratic palace, representing couples on klinai in richly decorated surroundings, never explicitly in sexual positions. The Author sees in such images a strong Hellenistic background and adhesion to earlier Greek motifs, underlining luxury and the pleasures of life in general.
