  • Un nouvel emploi du cobalt identifié sur un vase en albâtre de la XVIIIe
           dynastie inscrit au nom d’Amenhotep III découvert à Ougarit (Syrie)

    • Authors: Valérie Matoïan, Anne Bouquillon
      Abstract: Des incrustations bleues soulignant les hiéroglyphes de deux fragments d’un vase en albâtre calcaire inscrit au nom du pharaon Amenhotep III (Louvre, inv. AO 27127) découvert à Ougarit ont été étudiées par des méthodes non-destructives. L’analyse révèle que du cobalt a été utilisé comme élément colorant, probablement sous la forme spinelle proche de celle identifiée pour les pigments des céramiques égyptiennes (« blue-painted pottery ») de la même époque.

  • Investigations of a Gandharan stucco head of the Buddha at the Victoria
           and Albert Museum (IM.3-1931)

    • Authors: Giovanni Verri, Christian Luczanits, Victor Borges, Nick Barnard, John Clarke
      Abstract: This study presents the results of a technical and art historical study of an important Gandharan head from the Victoria and Albert Museum. For several years, the head has played an important role in the history of Gandharan art, because of its high aesthetic qualities. However, the head has received limited scholarly attention since its first display in the 1930s. This study reviewed the head’s physical, curatorial and conservation history and determined its construction using non-invasive and non-contact investigative techniques (technical imaging, FTIR, XRF and FORS). The support consists of several layers of a lime- and gypsum-based plaster (gauging plaster) and only salient elements of the face (e.g. lips, eyes and hairline) and the hair were painted, with a high-quality red ochre and with an unidentified black pigment, respectively. A careful examination of the construction of the head allowed to determine that it probably belonged to an iconic representation of the Buddha, as...

  • Mesopotamian Sculpture in Colour, edited by Astrid Nunn and Heinrich
           Piening, PeWe-Verlag, Gladbeck, 2020

    • Authors: Astrid Nunn
      Abstract: Le projet En Occident, on pense souvent que les statues antiques n’étaient pas polychromées et qu’elles avaient, dès l’origine, la couleur de la pierre. Cette idée fausse reste bien ancrée dans les mentalités malgré le nombre et la vulgarisation croissante des recherches portant sur la couleur dans l’Antiquité. Il n’y a aucune raison pour que les spectateurs de la statuaire orientale réagissent différemment. Pourtant, il ne fait maintenant plus aucun doute que les effigies humaines mésopotamiennes étaient colorées. L’absence de prise en compte de la polychromie dans ce domaine est due à la disparition quasi-totale des couleurs sur ces objets très anciens et à la difficulté de trouver des protocoles analytiques adaptés à l’étude des restes colorés et répondant aux exigences déontologiques des musées. La monographie comblera cette lacune en proposant une restitution de la polychromie sur les statues de pierre mésopotamiennes. Outre la description de tous les aspects techniques (caracté...

  • The experimental reconstruction of the bronze warriors of Riace as part of
           the Frankfurt “Liebieghaus Polychromy Research Project”

    • Authors: Vinzenz Brinkmann, Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann
      Abstract: The contribution describes the experimental reconstruction of the two bronze warriors discovered in 1972 in the sea a few meters off the coast of Riace. The Frankfurt project intends to contribute to the question of the production process, but also to the interpretation of these famous sculptures. On the basis of a 3D scan, a 1:1 bronze replica was recast. Eyes, eyelashes, lips, teeth and nipples, which had been originally made of stones and inlays of copper and silver, were reproduced and, together with a speculative patination and a painting based on linseed oil and asphalt, provide a starting point to discuss issues of the authentic appearance. Meticulous studies of the preserved technical traces on the warriors’ heads allow a reconstruction of both lost headgears that eventually provide a strong argument for the identification of both warriors.

  • The new corpus of painted Imperial Roman marble reliefs from Nicomedia: a
           preliminary report on polychromy

    • Authors: Mark B. Abbe, Tuna Şare Ağtürk
      Abstract: This paper presents an initial report on the extant polychromy on the remarkable series of Roman marble state relief sculptures excavated at a newly discovered Tetrarchic imperial building complex in Nicomedia (Turkey). The reliefs, featuring imperial and other diverse subject matters, retain extensive ancient coloration. A brief discussion of the history of the discovery and excavations surrounding these reliefs and the current Tübitak Archaeological Project is followed with a discussion of their polychromy. Preliminary observations about the painting technique, the range of colors and the palette of pigments and patterning are presented, before focusing on the use of color in the dress of the imperial costumes of the emperors. These exceptional painted state reliefs afford key new insights into the nexus of art, color-coding, sculpture, and court ritual in later Roman culture.

  • La couleur des bronzes antiques : recherches récentes

    • Authors: Sophie Descamps-Lequime
      Abstract: Les effets de polychromie recherchés par les bronziers antiques reposaient essentiellement sur des techniques propres au travail du métal et non sur les pratiques picturales adoptées à la même époque par les sculpteurs sur pierre et par les coroplathes. Leur palette, liée à des incrustations et à des placages de métaux purs ou alliés, était donc limitée, même si l’une des sources de couleurs supplémentaires venait des yeux rapportés des statues. Les Anciens recherchaient l’éclat et la brillance du métal. Pour préserver la teinte métallique originelle des bronzes, proche d’un or plus ou moins rosé, et ralentir le processus d’altération du bronze, ils traitaient les épidermes à l’aide de substances bitumineuses ou de poix qui, paradoxalement, assombrissaient progressivement les statues. Cet assombrissement est probablement à l’origine d’un changement de goût, qui expliquerait peut-être l’apparition, avant la fin de l’époque hellénistique, de patines artificielles intentionnellement so...

  • A group of painted funerary monuments from Hellenistic Alexandria in the
           Metropolitan Museum of Art

    • Authors: Dorothy H. Abramitis, Mark B. Abbe
      Abstract: Examination and scientific analysis have elucidated the well-preserved figural painting on a collection of limestone funerary stelai and loculus slabs from Alexandria, Egypt, dating from the late 4th to 3rd centuries B.C. This paper presents new information about the preparation, design, and technique of these paintings, which display a lead white ground preparation, both incised and black preliminary drawing, and a masterful elaborate multi-layered painting process to build up color. The paintings’ generally bright colorful palette employs a wide range of pigments attested elsewhere in the classical Greek palette, and features, notably, the extensive use of mimetite, a geologically rare yellow lead arsenate mineral, uncommon in Greek and Roman painting and unknown in earlier Pharaonic painting traditions.

  • The “lost art” of Archaic Greek painting: revealing new evidence on
           the Pitsa pinakes through MA-XRF and imaging techniques

    • Authors: Hariclia Brecoulaki, Giovanni Verri, Brigitte Bourgeois, Francesco Paolo Romano, Andreas G. Karydas, Claudia Caliri, Elena Martín González, Giorgos Kavvadias
      Abstract: In the present work, four wooden panels dated to the second half of the 6th century B.C., discovered in 1934 inside a cave located in Corinthia near the ancient city of Sicyon, are examined. The “Pitsa pinakes” are the oldest known examples of panel painting in ancient Greece. The application of non-invasive and non-contact imaging and analytical techniques (imaging techniques, including infrared-reflected and visible-induced luminescence, microscopy and mapping XRF) has brought to light significant evidence on the materials and the technology of the paintings. Multiple figurative elements that had remained previously “unseen”, due to the losses and degradation of the original paint layers, were recovered, allowing for a better understanding of the original iconography. Furthermore, imaging techniques have largely contributed to an enhanced reading and understanding of the inscriptions preserved on the panels, including the personal name “Kalypso” on the panel depicting a ritual dan...

  • La peinture sur les sols de mortier et les mosaïques d’époque
           hellénistique : modes d’emploi d’une polychromie architecturale
           largement méconnue

    • Authors: Anne-Marie Guimier-Sorbets
      Abstract: En nous fondant sur des pavements découverts en Macédoine, à Rhodes, à Délos, à Alexandrie et dans quelques autres sites du monde grec, nous nous attacherons à montrer comment la polychromie a été mise en œuvre et développée sur les sols de mortier et les mosaïques à partir des ve-ive siècles avant J.-C., dans des contextes tant publics que domestiques. Le premier objectif était de décorer les sols par l’adjonction de couleurs vives pour étendre et aviver la polychromie, élément important du décor architectural grec. Le second était de copier la peinture murale ou de chevalet, art majeur de cette époque, lui-même fortement polychrome et illusionniste. En raison de l’altération de la peinture et des matériaux artificiels employés, cette polychromie n’a pas été repérée au moment de la découverte et reste en grande partie à restituer.

  • Archaeometric analyses of the stuccoes and polychromy on temple C at
           Selinunte (Sicily)

    • Authors: Lorenzo Lazzarini, Katia D’Ignoti, Giovanni Alfano, Stefano Cancelliere, Carmelo Bennardo
      Abstract: The most recent restoration of the re-erected part of temple C of ancient Selinus (modern Selinunte, Sicily) made it possible to carry out direct observations and a sampling campaign on the very few extant ancient stuccoes and polychromy traces on the columns and capitals of the northern peristasis. The samples were submitted to laboratory analyses including XRD on powder, OM, as well as SEM-EDS, on polished and thin sections, providing a stratigraphic reconstruction of the various stuccoes applied over the biocalcarenite of the temple. The composition of the stuccoes, together with that of the remaining polychromy, has been determined archaeometrically, thus allowing new hypotheses about the decorative materials and techniques used during the main lifetime (6th-5th centuries B.C.) of the temple.
