Description

Our timeless tray borrows select motifs adorning the garment on an ancient Greek sculpture of a woman reconstructed by Professor Dr. Vinzenz Brinkmann, head of the Department of Antiquity at Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung in Frankfurt, Germany, and polychromy expert Dr. Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann, from traces of vivid color and elaborate patterns embellished with gold foil identified in their research. Discovered in the peristyle court of a Hellenistic-period house on the Greek island of Delos, the original sculpture is one of the few of this type—based on earlier Greek depictions of goddesses—with preserved color.

Chroma: Ancient Sculpture in Color sheds new light on The Met's celebrated Greek and Roman art galleries. Juxtaposing now-achromatic ancient sculptures with contemporary reconstructions in vivid hues, this prismatic exhibition illuminates the monumental discovery of—and cutting-edge research into—color and other surface treatments on ancient works of art, and counters the social and aesthetic constructs born from common misconceptions and cultural traditions that equate white marble sculpture with ideal beauty.
