Description

By Paul Zanker

Portrait sculptures are among the most vibrant records of ancient Greek and Roman culture. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's distinguished collection of Greek and Roman portraits, published in its entirety for the first time in this volume, represents people of all ages and social strata. The sculpturesfrom the unvarnished realism of the late Republican period to the idealizing and progressively abstract tendencies that followedare lavishly illustrated, meticulously described, and placed in their historical and cultural context by Paul Zanker, one of the leading authorities on Roman sculpture today. In presenting them, Professor Zanker brings the ancient world to life for contemporary audiences. More than a collection catalogue, Roman Portraits is a thorough and multifaceted survey of ancient portraiture, one that renews our appreciation of and connection to these imposing, timeless works.

Paul Zanker is Professor Emeritus of the University of Munich and Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa and Dietrich von Bothmer Distinguished Research Scholar in the Department of Greek and Roman Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
