An excellent textbook covering all aspects of Roman art: architecture, paintings, sculpture, mosaics, etc. The book includes excellent illustrations and useful maps, the descriptions are clear and well referenced throughout the various chapters of the book.

A good introduction to Roman art with lots of great pictures and illustrations. It's straightforward and easy to read. A good supplement to lectures in an undergraduate course. I only wish that it weren't so expensive to buy.

A good overview of Roman Art. I bought this as a textbook for a class, and it was a very helpful companion to further understand what I was learning in class. I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about Roman Art and its relation to Roman history.
