A HISTORY OF ROMAN ART surveys the art of Rome and its empire from the time of Romulus to the death of Constantine presented in its historical, political, and social context. Divided into four parts (Italy before and during the Republic; and the Early, High, and Late Empires), each of the 21 chapters combines a discussion of general issues and individual monuments with a series of boxed essays on architectural terminology; materials and techniques; religion and mythology; the cultural context of works of art; the role of patrons; and the problems that ancient artists and architects faced and how they solved them. Special chapters are devoted to Pompeii and Herculaneum and funerary and provincial art in all media.
