" Gods in Color - Exhibition to Show Ancient Sculpture in Original Hues " (Artfix Daily, 31.08.2017)
Quote:
The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) will host Gods in Color: Polychromy in the Ancient World, an exhibition that will present ancient sculpture to Bay Area audiences as never before: in vibrant color. The exhibition will reintroduce ‘polychromy’ – the painting of sculpture to dazzling and powerful effect. Defying the idea of the stark white marble of antiquity, the installation is the result of over 30 years of groundbreaking research in pigmentation of ancient sculpture by international scientists and archaeologists. ...

... “Our visitors who imagine the classical world as stark and white will be shocked and startled to see antique sculpture in such bright and vivid colors,” says Max Hollein, Director and CEO of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. “Gods in Color explains how ancient art and architecture is incomplete without color. White or monochrome sculpture would have been as strange to the ancients as the color reproductions in this exhibition might seem to us.” ...

... The exhibition will be on view from October 28, 2017 – January 7, 2018.
