Ancient Roman architecture adopted the external language of classical Greek architecture for the purposes of the ancient Romans , but was different from Greek buildings, becoming a new architectural style. The two styles are often considered one body of classical architecture. Roman architecture flourished in the Roman Republic and even moreso under the Empire , when the great majority of surviving buildings were constructed. It used new materials, particularly Roman concrete , and newer technologies such as the arch and the dome to make buildings that were typically strong and well-engineered. Large numbers remain in some form across the empire, sometimes complete and still in use to this day.
This chapter examines the wide variety of functions of art in ancient Rome, with particular emphasis on the use of images in sculpture and painting. It first considers the use of sculptures in the decoration of houses and villas, followed by a discussion of honorary statues and monuments of public self-representation from the Late Republic to the Principate.
