Inspired by the painting The Last Day of Pompeii by the Russian painter Karl Briullov, this book contrasts the decadent culture of 1st-century Rome with both older cultures and coming trends, and culminates in the cataclysmic destruction of the city of Pompeii by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.
