This chapter explores the category of ‘late antique art’. It considers some of the changes in visual production — which fall basically in the 4th century — and examines how some of the characteristic elements of late antique art that emerged then were developed by the 6th century into a last spectacular synthesis, which was truly antique but nonetheless new by contrast with earlier production.

Keywords:   Late Antiquity, art, sculpture, visual arts
