The origins of Roman historical commemoration in the visual arts

Author: Peter James Holliday

Summary:
"History was an important element of Roman Republican culture, as revealed by the numerous historical accounts and panegyrics written during this period.

Roman patrons also exploited the visual arts to convey messages about history whose immediacy no text could rival. In this study, Peter J. Holliday explores the development of Roman history painting and sculpture in an effort to broaden our unders.

Providing a survey of this subject that takes into account recent archaeological discoveries and theoretical debates, he also considers how style worked in tandem 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 these images tell us about their achievements and the Republic that they served."--Jacket.  Read more...
