Geometric Patterns from Roman Mosaics And How to Draw Them by Robert Field


Geometric Patterns from Roman Mosaics And How to Draw Them by Robert Field

This book concentrates not on the figurative panels but on the geometric borders and patterns with which virtually all floors and corridors were decorated. Robert Fields has collected examples from many different sites and the book is arranged as a series of step-by-step drawing exercises. Experiencing the way the design elements are linked together is undoubtedly the best way to appreciate how inventive and skillful those ancient artists were.
