About Venus De Milo Statue Red - Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais

This Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais Venus de Milo Statue Red resin reproduction is based upon the original Hellenistic sculpture, Aphrodite (Venus de Milo), made in Paros Marble by Alexandros of Antioch-on-the-Meander; currently found on Display at Louvre Museum. The Venus de Milo occupies a foremost place in the history of Greek sculpture and the taste for the antique. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the artists of antiquity did not choose marble for its pure whiteness. When studied under a microscope, many works reveal traces of red, blue, green or yellow pigments. Surprise: Greek Sculpture was polychrome. To revive the spirit of antique sculpture, mistakenly thought to be austere, this Venus de Milo Yellow statue has been covered with bright colors, along with many others in our collection. A farmer discovered the statue near the ruins of an antique theatre on the island of Melos (Milo) in 1820. The Marquis de Rivière bought it and presented it to Louis XVIII in 1821. The king later gave it to the Louvre. More details on Venus de Milo Statue Red - Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais:
