Drawings : Drawings of various Mycenae pottery vessels and sherds

Drawings

<p>This ‘album’ brings together a varied group of pottery, spanning a sherd studied by A.J.W. Wace in the National Archaeological Museum, Athens, in 1940, to significant finds from the excavations of the 1950s. In particular, several important fragments of painted pottery vessels were discovered in the House of Lead on the Atreus Ridge in 1955. The draughtsman Piet de Jong created watercolour drawings of key pieces from this context on site, having previously drawn material at Mycenae during the 1920-1923 seasons. The architect Charles K. Williams of Princeton University drew pottery from earlier excavations, at Nauplion Museum, during the study season of 1957.</p>
