Narrated by the actor Anna Thalbach, the audio guide offers an insightful tour of the exhibition Gods in Color—Golden Edition. On the way, the image of antiquity as a vibrantly colorful age comes alive in numerous sculptures and reconstructions. The 60-minute app contains audio tracks on some 30 works of art, enhanced with illustrations.

For more than fifteen years, the polychromy of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture has been fascinating the public worldwide. Some three million visitors have experienced the “Gods in Color” firsthand in the museums of cities such as Munich, Rome, Athens, Istanbul, Malibu and Copenhagen, Vienna, London, Mexico City and, most recently, San Francisco.

Starting on January 30, 2020, the “Gods in Color” will be back in Frankfurt. On that day, the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung is opening a major enlarged exhibition allowing a nuanced look at the disconcerting phenomenon of statuary polychromy. Among other things, the show will shed light on how scholars responded to polychromy in the period from the mid-eighteenth century to World War I—and the extensive accompanying reconstruction activities.

The exhibition will present more than 100 objects from international museum collections and the Liebieghaus holdings, including more than 50 recent reconstructions but also some dating from the nineteenth century, as well as 22 prints.
