Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums
32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

This event requires registration; see further details below.

Which colors did ancient Greek and Roman artists use, and how have we discovered their choices? What is polychromy, and how does it influence our understanding of the ancient world? This talk explores both the overt and covert colors within our ancient art collection, with a special emphasis on Greek vase paintings, marble sculpture, and Roman wall paintings.

Led by:
Vivian Jin, Ph.D. candidate, Department of the Classics, Harvard University; and graduate student intern, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art, Harvard Art Museums
