pinacotheca was a picture gallery in either ancient Greece or
ancient Rome. The name is specifically used for the building
containing pictures which formed the left wing of the Propylaea on
the Acropolis at Athens, Greece. Though Pausanias speaks of the
pictures "which time had not effaced," which seems to point to
fresco painting, the fact that there is no trace of preparation for
stucco on the walls shows that the paintings were easel pictures.
The Romans adopted the term for the room in a private house
containing pictures, statues, and other works of art.
