GRST 211 - Rome: The Art of Empire

1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 211 ) From humble beginnings to its conquest of most of the known world, Rome dominated the Mediterranean with the power of its empire. Art and architecture gave monumental expression to its political ideology, especially in the building of cities that spread Roman civilization across most of Europe and parts of the Middle East and Africa. Roman art also featured adornment, luxury, and collecting in both public and private spheres. Given the diversity of the people included in the Roman empire and its artistic forms, what is particularly Roman about Roman art? Eve D’Ambra.

Prerequisite(s): ART 105  or ART 106  or one unit in Greek and Roman Studies, or permission of the instructor.

Not offered in 2017/18.
