A clean, unmarked copy with a tight binding. 96 pages. B&w photos. Exhibition catalog. Slight edge wear.
The twenty-two masterworks in this exhibition--loaned to Emory University Museum by the Museo Nazionale Romano--include some of the most significant Roman portrait sculptures known. In the exhibition catalog, each portrait is first presented in a striking full-color photograph, and then detailed in four different perspectives in black and white photographs, accompanied by a detailed scholarly description.
Two historical essays by the authors place the magnificent sculptures in the context of Roman society and relate whatever information survives about their discovery.
