Description: This course explores the roots of the art and architecture of ancient Rome (ca. 600-200 BCE). In it we will examine the earliest vestiges of sculpture, painting and architecture from the Archaic and Classical periods to the twisted forms of Hellenistic conquest. You will grapple with the questions of cultural agency, connoisseurship, cultural interaction, network and object theories and spatial imagination to question standard narratives that divide Rome in this time from neighboring Greek polities.
