Roman Art by Peter Stewart

Book Description

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.
