Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Argues that the art produced in Britannia, particularly in the golden age of Late Antiquity, rivals that of other provinces and deserves comparison with the art of metropolitan Rome. Encompasses both the major arts, such as stone and bronze statuary, wall-painting, and mosaics, as well as applied arts such as jewelry, silversmithing, furniture design, pottery, and figurines. Looks at organization of workshops, the part played by patronage, and changes occurring in the fourth century. Includes b&w and color photos and a glossary. First published in 1995. Distributed by Routledge. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
