Arthur Frothingham, one of the founding fathers of Art History, here discusses the problem of the Arch of Constantine, whose form and artwork is at odds with the artwork of the era of Constantine. The article discusses the various components of the arch separately since it appears that different elements of the arch were salvaged from different sources and added to the final structure at different times. This piece not only provides an interpretation of the structure, but also closely reviews this important monument component by component. It is useful not only to specialists, but also to students of Roman art in need of an introduction to this key arch.
