A History of Roman Art / Edition 1 available in Paperback
Winner of the prestigious TAA Textbook Excellence Award, A HISTORY OF ROMAN ART has been updated to reflect scholarship advances of the past decade, and dramatically expands the lavish photographic documentation of the first edition with more than 400 new color photographs available in the text and online in MindTap. Professor Kleiner's approach to telling the story of Roman art and architecture, widely praised for its clarity, readability, and accuracy, is maintained in the new edition. 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, with coverage of Etruscan and Greek art in Italy before the rise of Rome and of Christian art and architecture during the Late Empire. Special chapters are devoted to Pompeii and Herculaneum, funerary and provincial art in all media.
