The Power of Color: Polychromy and pigments in ancient Mediterranean and Latin American art 
February 2, 2018

An understanding and appreciation of color is fundamental to art history, and yet our experience of color in the world around us is broadly subjective. Tracing the use and perception of color in past cultures can be even more elusive. However, recent research has taken diverse approaches – from investigating the manufacture of pigments to considering literary descriptions of the workings of the eye – illuminating ancient artworks with dramatic results. The Colloquium considers the power of color in both the ancient Mediterranean and early Latin America.
