What to know about Roman art

When we talk about Roman art, you must understand that it refers to the art objects made in ancient Rome. So, Roman art includes all the objects made from the creation of Rome (753 BC) onwards to the descent of the Western Empire (476 AD). Around the 19th century, this art was accused by historians of having copied Greek art. However, faced with this problem, the Romans began to make entirely Roman objects. This art includes: the art of painting, the art of architecture, the art of mosaic and the art of sculpture. Among these arts, the Romans developed the art of sculpture and painting. Speaking of contemporary and modern art, it should be noted that the various artists of this time have always referred to ancient art to innovate. Ancient Roman art has therefore played an important role in the evolution of modern art. Also, for many years, artists have always visited the museums of Rome to be inspired by these achievements.
