Summary
"Greek and Roman Mosaics is a masterly overview of the rich and varied ancient art of mosaic. In the first part of this handsome volume, the styles and techniques of the ancient mosaicist's art are given a concise yet authoritative exposition. The second, and larger, part conducts the reader on a chronological tour of the most important centers of the art form's development. Featuring more than two hundred newly commissioned photographs, Greek and Roman Mosaics is the first survey of its subject to be illustrated in full color"--
