9781445633725: The Mirror of Venus: Women in Roman Art

Though images of women were ubiquitous in the Roman world, these were seldom intended to be taken simply at face value. The importance of marriage, motherhood and political stability was often conveyed to the Roman people through carefully constructed representations of the women of the ruling house. Mythological representations were used to present moral and political lessons to the women of Rome. Roman society was, on most levels, male dominated and women’s roles were sometimes subordinate to political and cultural needs and imperatives. Images of mortal women empresses and other female members of the imperial family, elite women from around the empire and working women from Rome, Ostia, Pompeii and elsewhere are analysed alongside images of goddesses and personifications and of complex mythological figures such as Amazons. This is the first general book to present a coherent, broad analysis of the numerous images of women in Roman art and to interpret their meaning and significance, all set against the broader geographical, chronological, political, religious and cultural context of the world of the Roman republic and empire and of Late Antiquity.

Description du livre Amberley, 2015. État : New. The art produced in the male-dominated society of ancient Rome abounds in images of imperial wives, working women and female mythological characters such as the Amazons. This broad thematic survey of such representations from across the empire interprets them in the light of political, religious and cultural contexts to show how much they reflect an ideological stereotype of the Roman matron, and how they were used to convey moral and political messages to women.
