The catalogue devotes two pages to each of the 44 exhibits, one of description and the other a full-colour reproduction of the work of art. Many of them have never been previously exhibited or published in detail. In their introductory essay the authors discuss how artists in Rome have responded to this beautiful place and how their work can throw new light on its history. An essential book for understanding better the cemetery in its Roman context.
