Vol. II: Male Private Portraits, Beiträge zur Erschließung hellenistischer und kaiserzeitlicher Skulptur und Architektur 4 (Berlin 2010)

 

By this book the Roman portraits of male private persons produced from Late Republican times through Late Antiquity and stored in the Capitoline Museums and the other Municipal Collections in the City of Rome are published. The catalogue comprises 188 likenesses, some of them published here for the first time. The portraits are extensively discussed in regard to the development of the art form incorporating many comparable works of art stored in other collections throughout the world. All pieces are depicted with photographs of at least four views. This book is the third volume of the catalogue of which vol. I (portraits of emperors) and vol. III (portraits of women) have been published in 1983 and 1985.
