Roman Art and Architecture
Instructor: Professor Kuttner
of the political, religious and domestic arts, patronage and display
in Rome's Mediterranean, from the 2nd c. BCE to Constantine's 4th-c.
Christianized empire - images (painting, mosaic, sculpture, luxury
and mass-produced arts), and architecture & landscape architecture,
in sanctuaries, cities and villas. We start with the Hellenistic cosmopolitan
culture of the Greek kingdoms and late Etruscan and Republican Italy,
and then map how a Roman high art culture was developed for the capital
city, and was adapted to unify the Empire's many peoples from Britain
to the Middle East.
