This page lists titles related to our course. These are of two
- Books on reserve in the Art Library for our course, plus the
Blue Binder with articles;
- A list of books, usually not on reserve, but quite possibly of
interest to those either going to Rome at some time or who would
just like to read about Rome. (Mostly posted: 2 April)
There will be a link to the books currently on reserve at the Art
Library; more will be added through the term so check this link
frequently. The reserve books include copies of the required texts
and other titles that I think might be of use or of interest to
you. The art history majors who have been privileged with the honor
of writing a paper probably will find books and articles of interest
Note that there is also a blue binder (I'll get the official name as
soon as it is set up) with some articles of the same types as
