The White Marbles of Rome
Sunday April 11, 9pm Rome time (find your timezone here)
Marbles help define imperial Rome in the form of statuary, columns, and architectural features. They were not uniform in quality and appearance, and, though poorly preserved, a wide variety of colors were applied to the white statuary marble. We will take a particular look at the Augustus Prima Porta statue and the Ara Pacis monument to address the paint typically applied to marble in the ancient world. We will also look at the defining characteristics of the white marbles of Rome, from the Italic Luna/ Carrara marble, to the Attic Pentelic, to the Turkish Proconnesian and Docimium, to the Greek island quarries of Thasos and Paros.
