During the spring of 2004 the Minneapolis Institute of Arts held an exhibition of Roman mythological figures and portraits from the Miller Collection, an important American private collection of Roman sculpture. This richly illustrated volume presents the catalogue, comprising thirty-one portrait heads, funerary reliefs of people and animals, and mythical figures and beasts. Each work of art is presented in a full-page colour photograph with a facing description and discussion. Richard Brilliant's introductory discussion considers the collector's vision of his friend Dr Miller while Sheree Jaros introduces the catalogue itself.
