Summary

Fully revised and further enlarged, with more color illustrations and fresh topics, this is the fourth edition of an absorbing introduction to the painting, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts of the Roman world. Clear and comprehensive, it covers the 1,300 years from the Etruscan forerunners of the Romans to the introduction of Christianity under the Emperor Constantine the Great. The new edition introduces such subjects as rescue excavations, art for private patrons, and erotic art. New features include a timeline of the major periods, events, and artworks; more family trees of the imperial dynasties; and a table of Roman gods and goddesses and their Greek equivalents. The text now includes more on daily life, mosaics, and building techniques, and discusses the art of each political period, while also looking at history, myth, literature, and social customs. The clearly written text, incorporating the most up-to-date scholarship, is complemented by numerous new color photographs as well as maps, plans, and diagrams, an expanded glossary and bibliography, and lists of ancient authors and Roman emperors.
