Latin Class Visits Greek-Roman Galleries at Met

Form I boys journeyed to the Metropolitan Museum's Greek and Roman galleries for the first time as Latin students with Classics Department Chair John Young who reports as follows: Armed with sketchbooks and pencils, the boys learned about and sketched architectural artifacts to reinforce their lessons about Roman monuments. The highlighted pieces were the Ionic column from Sardis, the frescoes from Boscoreale, and the mosaic floor from near Antioch. The trip was made possible by our chaperones Ms. Witt, Ms. Chernoff-White, Ms. Obeid and Mr. Katz, who documented our trip in photos.
