Jasper Gaunt, Ph.D. / Faces of Power: Portraiture in the Greco-Roman World

In this lecture, Gaunt describes in great details the origins of portaits throughout Roman Art. Thousands of years before the first photograph, Greek artists learned to immortalize their heroes in portraits. While the Greeks did not invent the art of portraiture, they were the first to fully exploit its many uses. Lecture date: October 8, 2008
