In addition to being housed in part in the neoclassical Alumni Memorial Hall, the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) is home to many works of art inspired by antiquity, including Randolph Rogers’ famous Nydia, the Blind Flower Girl of Pompeii. This should not unexpected since the museum contains the works of many 19th and early 20th-century American and European artists who drew upon Greco-Roman art for their themes.
