To deal with Roman and Palaeochristian painting in one book is to adopt a definite attitude towards Roman art and its Greek and Etruscan predecessors, as well as towards the plastic development which, during the early Middle Ages and the Golden Age of Byzantium, followed its flowering and decay. The author prefers to remain faithful to the older tradition, which regarded the frescoes in the necropoleis of Tarquinia and Cerveteri, and all the other works of the greatest period of Etruscan art, as being clearly influenced by Greek art. Translated into English from the French by Anthony Rhodes.
