Contrary to popular belief, it was not for the purity of its whiteness that the artists of antiquity had recourse to marble. On many works, microscopic research revealed traces of red, blue, green, or yellow pigments. Surprise: Greek sculpture was polychrome.
To suggest the spirit of ancient sculpture, wrongly considered austere, the Venus de Milo was therefore dressed by the Louvre workshops in a bright magenta with the most beautiful effect.
Editions Museal offer you a reproduction of this masterpiece in colored resin, magenta color, produced by the molding workshops of the Louvre.
This intense Magenta color is therefore also a tribute to the creative audacity of the sculptor who, a century before our era, produced this ultimate work which still symbolizes the perfection of ancient sculpture today.
