A complete introduction to the rich cultural legacy of Rome through the study of Roman art is available in this comprehensive, beautifully packaged educational kit. Published to coincide with the opening of the Museum's new galleries of Hellenistic, Etruscan, and Roman art, this fully illustrated resource is designed specifically for K12 teachers. It includes a discussion of the relevance of Rome to the modern world, a short historical overview, and descriptions of 45 works of art in the Roman collection organized in three thematic sections: Power and Authority in Roman Portraiture; Myth, Religion, and the Afterlife; and Daily Life in Ancient Rome. The resource also provides lesson plans and classroom activities and, as a companion to the resource, the catalogue Art of the Classical World in The Metropolitan Museum of Art: Greece, Cyprus, Etruria, Rome.
