Etruscan Art

“Etruscan Art: The tomb painting, sculpture, pottery, and bronze ware produced by the people of Etruria in northern Italy (who were originally from Asia Minor) from the 7th to the 3rd centuries B.C. Strongly influenced by Greek art, Etruscan culture was eventually absorbed by the Romans.”
