Skillfully wrought and expressive, sculptural portraits are among the most compelling artistic records of Roman culture. In this richly illustrated book, 60 portrait heads—of emperors, everyday men and women, and funerary portraits—from the Metropolitan Museum's extensive collection are fully described, and placed in their historical and cultural contexts. Unearthing the evolution of this art from its origins in Greece through the zenith of the Roman Empire, Paul Zanker presents a thorough and multifaceted survey of Roman stone and bronze portraiture as well as a brief overview of the history of ancient portraiture.
