"Tempting temptations ..." : two Swedish architects encounters with Pompei 1843-44 and 1884 (English)
Abstract [en]

Ever since the remains of the ancient city of Pompei was rediscovered in the 18th century it became an important destination for artists and architects. The unique settings made it possible to study the greek and roman art and life which was considered important having knowledge about. As a complement to the architectural education at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm the students could gain funds to make a Grand Tour and visit Pompei.

The aim in this study is to explain the study tours the architects made to Pompei by studying their experiences at the site. Fredrik Wilhelm Scholander and Isak Gustaf Clason serves as examples of two swedish architects visiting Pompei on such a tour. In the study I describe why and how these tours were made and why Pompei was an important destination. Through a large material of letters, notes and studies in aquarelle and in pencil in the swedish archives it is possible to paint a picture of their impressions, experiences and studies. Finally I examine what they passed on from the journey when they came home in their roles as teachers and influential architects.
