This book provides a general survey of Roman wall painting from the second century B.C. through to the fourth century A.D., tracing the origins, chronological development, subjects, techniques, and social context of this art which had considerable influence upon European artists of the Renaissance and Neo-Classical periods. It deals particularly with the paintings from the buried cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and its main purpose is to provide an up-to-date summary of the subject in light of the most recent research. This is the first general history of Roman painting written specifically for English-language readers.
