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. This year’s Templeton Colloquium considers the power of color in both the ancient Mediterranean and early Latin America. Speakers: Dr. Diana Magaloni, Director of the Program for Art of the Ancient Americas, LACMA and Dr. Jennifer Stager, Art Historian and Curator. John Lopez and Alexandra Sofroniew, both Professors of the Art History Program, will respond.

This event is sponsored by Department of Art and Art History, Manetti Shrem Museum
