Product description

With its richly figurative friezes, the column of Marcus Aurelius is a key monument of Roman art concerned withrepresenting power. Yet it has always been regarded and interpreted as being overshadowed by Trajan s column. The present study abandons this point of view. Starting from a systematic analysis of the visual material, it investigates the forms of imperial representation in the reliefs. The findings of the study not only lead to a new aesthetic and historical valuation of the column of Marcus Aurelius but also suggest ways to reconsider other comparable images of Roman art concerned with representing power."
