Ancient Romans believed that Greek culture was superior to their own but adaptable to their purposes. From the second century B.C. onwards, Greek artists and craftsmen flocked to Italy and were influenced by its native resources and ideas. Thus any building or work of art produced under Roman patronage was likely to be heterogeneous. This volume surveys architecture, sculpture, painting; and applied arts, showing how magnificently the Romans combined diverse traditions for their own artistic needs.
