About this title:
Book Description: In this study of Roman history painting, Peter Holliday broadens our understanding of the ways in which Roman commemorative art constructed a narrative for the ancient viewer. Providing a survey of this subject that takes into account recent archaeological discoveries and theoretical debates, he also considers how style worked with narrative and had political significance. Holliday's study sharpens our understanding of the kinds of narrative that the Roman elite wished to convey through images, and what they images tell us about their achievements and the Republic that they served.
