Collection of Antiquities, Munich

Interesting
Housed in a building with a corinthian colonnade porch, a large collection of ceramics shows the development of pottery and painting on vases in Ancient Greece. There are examples of successive styles (geometric décor, black faces, red faces) presented on vases for different purposes. The bronzes and Etruscan jewels show great skill in fashioning materials and all these objects show great finesse and elegance.
