Bringing the Color Back to Ancient Greece

We have inherited an image of her as an idealized nude chiseled in white marble, immortalized by works such as Praxitelesí Aphrodite of Knidos or the Venus de Milo.

That image is dead wrong, according to modern scholars. Ancient sculptors were very much interested in color as well as form; the white marble statues we admire looked stunningly different in antiquity. They were painted with a palette that displayed a sophisticated understanding of color and shading.
