- Students will learn the key developments, vocabulary terms, and works of art which are associated with the Roman civilization and style.
- Students who have completed the preceding course "The Etruscans in the Art History of Ancient Italy" will be most prepared to appreciate the broad view of how art developed in the ancient world, but this course also can stand alone and provide a solid grounding in Roman art and civilization.
The Roman Empire achieved the conquest of virtually all of the Western European continent by the first centuries of the first millennium C.E. Hand-in-hand with their extraordinary military and political history goes the use of images conscripted to serve their larger ambitions. This course takes a look at Roman portrait sculpture, as well as the Four Orders of Roman Wall painting, with the broad arch of Rome's fortunes from birth, to rise, and eventual decline.
- High school, university, and graduate students will find both a review of key pieces and developments as well as original research and connections which are exclusive to this course.
