Late Empire - Introduction
Introduction to the art of the Late Roman Empire is coming soon!

Late Empire - Architecture
Arch of Constantine | This monumental work stands as one of the last great examples of the Roman triumphal arch.

Late Empire - Sculpture
Arch of Constantine | The relief sculptures on the Arch of Constantine are an interesting juxtaposition of old and new - it is informative to compare and contrast the appropriated reliefs with those created specifically for this arch.

Constantine the Great | Only fragments of this colossal statue of the Emperor Constantine remain - a gigantic hand, and the mesmerizing image of Constantine's head both reveal the otherworldly aspects of Late Roman sculpture.


A Handbook of Roman Art
