Ancient monuments constitute the main body of the exhibition and account for its international rank. The most noteworthy include an ample set of painted Greek pottery (Attic vases from the Czartoryski Goluchow collection: the Panathenaic amphora by the Berlin Painter, the amphora by Euthymides, a hydria with the oldest known representation of Sappho) and South-Italian vases from the Branicki Wilanow collection. The exhibition documents the development of art, primarily that of Grecian drawing between the 10th and 1st c. B.C. Distinct among the Roman works on show are portraits from between the 1st and 3rd c. A. D., glass vessels and bronze monuments (a silver encrusted vase support found at Zakrzow, now a district of Wroclaw).
