Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Originally published in 2005, this book examines Roman strategies for the appropriation of the Greek visual culture and argues that the scholarship on this topic, dominated by copy criticism (Kopienkritik), has not appreciated Roman values in the visual arts. Ellen Perry analyzes the Roman aesthetics that lie at the core of the visual conservatism - and innovation - in the art of that civilization. These attitudes help to explain the preponderance of copies, exact or free, after the sculpture of great Greek masters in Roman art.
