Customer Reviews

An excellent introductory resource  April 9, 2011

I use this book as the primary text in my class on Roman Art and Archaeology. While it has largely an Art Historical bent, it is still the best, most comprehensive book that is currently available (I switch from Strong's Roman Art that pre-dates this text by a few decades).The illustrations and images are beautiful, it has snippets of history and text to provide good context, and is organized in a nice, chronological fashion. I would highly recommend it to educators and beginner students who are studying Classical Art History.

A History of Roman Art, Enhanced Edition: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


A History of Roman Art: Enhanced Edition is a lavishly-illustrated survey of the art of Rome and the Roman Empire from the time of Romulus to the death of Constantine, presented in its historical, political, and social context. This Enhanced Edition has added coverage on Etruscan art in the beginning of the text. All aspects of Roman art and architecture are treated, including private art and domestic architecture, the art of the Eastern and Western provinces, the art of freedmen, and the so-called minor arts, including cameos, silverware, and coins.

The book is divided into four parts-Monarchy and Republic, Early Empire, High Empire, and Late Empire-and traces the development of Roman art from its beginnings in the 8th century BCE to the mid fourth century CE, with special chapters devoted to Pompeii and Herculaneum, Ostia, funerary and provincial art and architecture, and the earliest Christian art.

The illustrations and images are beautiful, it has snippets of history and text to provide good context, and is organized in a nice, chronological fashion. The original edition of this text was warmly received in the market based on a high level of scholarship, comprehensive contents, and superb visuals.
