KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a handsome addition to the author's well-received series of art books. The photographs, although not in color, are excellent reproductions which show the depth, texture, and use of light in the originals. This technique is especially effective in displaying Roman art because of the emphasis on marble statuary, stone reliefs, and other plastic forms. The book is quite short but the illustrations have been chosen with care, and the minimal text clarifies the most important points. This book has the same effective layout of the preceding ones, with large squares and stripes of color highlighting each page.
