Product Information for "Language Of The Muses - Miranda Marvin" »
Manufacturer's product description
Since the Renaissance, it has been generally accepted that many Roman sculptures depicting ideal figures - gods, personifications, and figures from myth - were copies of Greek originals. This title traces the origin of this idea to the academic belief in the mythical perfection of Greek art and contrasts it with the imperfection of Roman works.
