A comprehensive study of the lives of Roman women as revealed in Roman art. It concentrates on the evidence provided by portraits, reliefs, wall-paintings, architecture and decorative arts. The catalogue entries describe more than 180 works, and seven essays-by Natalie Kampen, Klaus Fitschen, Andrew Wallace-Hadrill, Susan Treggiari and others-discuss gender theory, portraits of empresses and princesses, the portrayal of women as goddesses and women's roles in society, the home, literature and artistic patronage.

Here's another title which could be reviewed in either the art or history section: it's a companion to the exhibition organized by the Yale University Art Gallery and provides the first comprehensive study of the lives of Roman women as revealed in Roman art, but deserves extra emphasis in the history section for its fine essays discussing the lives and experiences of women in Roman times. -- Midwest Book Review
