I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 11, north wall of cubiculum. According to Curtis, on Eschebach’s 1969 plan of the house a doorway is shown from this cubiculum into the house at I.12.14.  This is an error. See Curtis R.L: The Garum shop of Pompeii, In Cronache Pompeiane, V.1979, p.8, note 5.  He also described this room as having a beautiful third style wall painting on three of its walls. The bordering appeared in deep green and the architectural structure above the panels contained differently shaped amphorae.
A large panel on each of the three walls contained a simple idyllic scene on a white background. See Curtis R.L: The Garum shop of Pompeii, In Cronache Pompeiane, V.1979, (p.20).

I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 9, north wall of peristyle garden. On both sides of the doorway to the rear garden was a garden painting. Curtis described it as a large, brightly coloured painting, divided in the centre by the doorway leading into the rear courtyard.
Each half of the painting was bordered by a wide, red band. At each corner the artist painted an amphora in gold inside of a square with painted black background. See Curtis R.L: The Garum shop of Pompeii, In Cronache Pompeiane, V.1979, (p.19). See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas, (p.54-55 and p.326 & fig.378)

I.12.8 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 9, west side of north wall with remains of garden painting.  According to Curtis, the major panels of the painting depicted a garden scene with thick foliage. The left panel was much deteriorated, but both panels contained paintings of life-like birds standing on branches of green trees and shrubbery. According to Jashemski, she could see four song-birds in a thicket of ivy, flowering oleanders and myrtles.
The bottom part of the painting was destroyed. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas, (p.326 and fig.378)
