Ancient Greek, Roman artworks exhibition shows their passion for paint

Contrary to popular belief that the ancient Greeks and Romans were averse to colour, experts have said that back in the time of their creation, Roman and Greek monuments were vibrant and multi-coloured.


London, Aug 22 : Contrary to popular belief that the ancient Greeks and Romans were averse to colour, experts have said that back in the time of their creation, Roman and Greek monuments were vibrant and multi-coloured.

A recent exhibition, "Gods In Colour: Painted Sculpture of Classical Antiquity," features more than 20 full-size colour reconstructions of Greek and Roman works, alongside 35 original statues and pieces of art, reports the Daily Mail.

The display is based on 25 years of research by an international team of scholars and was originally launched at Harvard University's Arthur M. Sackler Museum in the U.S.

The curators are now touring the exhibition and it is currently on show at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, Germany.

The researchers said that it is simply that centuries of deterioration have removed any trace of the pigments.
