VII.15.2 Pompeii. December 2007. Doorway to cubiculum in centre of east side of atrium.
In the panel on the left of the doorway would have been the painting of Spring.
According to Sogliano –
“Spring, in the shape of a woman flying in the air, turning to the right, wearing a green robe and red mantle, which covered her left arm and lower body; she held with her left hand the four legs of a lamb, which she carried on her shoulder, and in the right hand a wicker-basket with some milk/ricotta.” 
(La Primavera, personificata in una donna liberata in ara, volta verso destra, con veste verde e manto rosso, che le covre il braccio sinistra e la parte inferiore del corpo; tiene con la sinistra le quattro zampe di un agnello, che porta sul collo, e nella destra un meta di latte nella sua fiscella.)
(Bull.Inst. 1872, p.166) (Fiorelli, Scav. d. Pomp. p.129 n. 270. Descr. Pomp, (p.305)
See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: Giannini, (p.76, no. 459)
In the panel on the right of the doorway would have been the painting of Winter.
According to Sogliano –
“Winter, in the shape of a woman flying in the air and turning to the left, with a dark-yellow robe, fluttering green mantle, which also covered her head, and yellow shoes; she held in the right hand, a branch devoid of leaves, and in the left lowered hand, Gaedechens saw two ducks of various colours, now vanished.”
(L’Inverno in figura do donna liberata in aria e volta a sinistra, con chitone giallo-scuro, manto verde svolazzante, che le covre anche la testa, e calzari gialli; tiene nella destra appoggiato all’omero corrispondente un ramo privo di foglie, e nella sinistra abbassata [Rudolf] Gaedechens vide due anitre vario pinte, ora svanite.)
(Bull.Inst. 1872, p.166) Fiorelli, Scav. d. Pomp, (p.130, n.281): Desc. Pomp, (p.198).
