From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Ideal for readers who are studying Roman art for the first time, this exceptionally well-illustrated book explores Roman art in the traditional historical manner — with a focus on painting, sculpture, architecture, and minor arts. Key Topics: 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. It illustrates all the works described with photographs or explanatory drawings and plans — showing the stylistic and technical points referred to in each work; contains many historical photographs, drawings, and engravings which often capture the spirit better than some modern ones; and cites the architectural remains and illustrates their importance, but illustrates sculpture or paintings from collections in the United States where possible, so that American readers will have a better chance of looking at some of the originals.
