Pompeii in Stockolm : A focus on content

Leander Touati, Anne-Marie LU (2016) In Returns to Pompeii 62. p.123-150
Abstract (Swedish)
The article treats the experience of Swedish designers, architects and sculptors, who travelled to Pompeii over some 200 years, from the 1760s to the 1920s, and their subsequent appropriation of the Pompeian idiom for creations in Stockholm and surroundings. It puts forth that the kind of premises found appropriate for decorations in Pompeian derivation varied over time, from Royal pleasure houses, sculptors' showrooms to bourgeois homes and apartment houses and, finally, to popular entertainment rooms. It argues that the Pompeian idiom in its Swedish translation was associated early with modernist ideas and later on with socially aware contents.
