Description

An absorbing introduction to Roman art and architecture

 

Roman Art, 6/e helps students gain an understanding of the development of Roman art and architecture across the entire Roman empire. This title deals comprehensively with the architecture, sculpture, painting, mosaics, and the decorative arts of the Romans placing them in their proper historical context. Readers will examine these artworks in the context of the history, religion, and politics of each era, building a fuller picture of how the arts relate to what else is going on in the Roman Republic and Empire.

 

This title is ideal for readers who are studying Roman art for the first time. It assumes no prior acquaintance with the classical world, and explains the necessary linguistic, historical, religious, social, and political background needed to fully understand Roman art.

 

MySearchLab is a part of the Ramage / Ramage program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore Roman Art in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
