Roman Art

£9.99

Product description

The book is in fine condition. From the
faces of emperors to mythological sarcophagi, from imperial propaganda to
domestic wall-painting and the earliest Christian images, this New Survey
offers an up-to-date, illustrated overview of the history of Roman art.
Explaining the material in an accessible and even-handed way, the author seeks
not only to introduce the art itself, but also to survey and evaluate the range
of approaches adopted by scholars in the field. Organized around the loose
categories of portraiture, public monuments, funerary art, domestic art, and
late antiquity, the discussion introduces representative monuments and problems
in Roman art. It also serves as an accessible, critical survey of the range of
approaches adopted by those attempting to explain the works. The text is aimed
at students, teachers, and anyone who wants to navigate a path through the
complexities of this vast but increasingly popular area of study.
