Powerful representation of a Roman aristocrat.

Lacks dynamism and emotion.

Verism = hyperrealism; features exaggerated.
Influenced by mental imagery and respect for family, tradition and ancestry.

For those without important ancestry; this gave them socio standing for an increase in politics and business.
