Roman art: Romulus to Constantine
This beautifully illustrated book explores Roman art in the traditional historical manner--with a focus on painting, sculpture, architecture, and minor arts. It assumes no prior acquaintance with the classical world and explains the necessary linguistic, historical, religious, social, and political background needed to fully understand Roman art.
