Credits: Three (3)
This course will explore the art and architecture of the Roman world. The material begins with an introduction to the achievements of the Etruscans, who preceded and influenced the development of Roman art and culture. The monuments, engineering advances and art of the Roman Republic and Imperial period are then examined in detail. Course material covers works of architecture, painting, sculpture and decorative art that remain influential models for architects and artists. Readings and museum visits will supplement slide lectures and provide a point of departure for in-class discussion.
