RISD Classical Gallery
Providence Public Library

This snapshot in time gives us a glimpse into the Classical Gallery at the RISD Museum in 1920. In the center of the image and toward the far right corner of the gallery, we see on display a Roman sarcophagus from the 2nd century CE as well as a fragmentary sarcophagus front and lid depicting the Slaughter of the Niobids from the end of the 2nd century. Both objects are still in the RISD Museum collection.
