Ariadne Abandones painting discovered at the Herculaneum Ruins in Italy

Ariadne Abandones painting found during excavations at the Roman ruins in Herculaneum, Italy is one of the few paintings left behind by French Bourbons who rediscovered the city in the mid-18th century. They riddled the area with tunnels, in search of ancient art and other booty that they could loot and carry off to France.
