Summary
"This book examines Roman strategies for the appropriation of Greek visual culture and argues that the earlier scholarship on this topic, dominated by copy criticism (Kopienkritik), has not appreciated Roman values in the visual arts. Ellen Perry analyzes the Roman aesthetics that lie at the core of the visual conservatism - and innovation - in the art of that civilization."--BOOK JACKET
