Art Talk Live: Persepolis in Color
Ancient sculpture was not colorless. Scientific analysis can help us envision the Persian capital city Persepolis in its original splendor.

Led by:
Katherine Eremin, Patricia Cornwell Senior Conservation Scientist, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies
Susanne Ebbinghaus, Head, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art, and George M.A. Hanfmann Curator of Ancient Art

This talk is part of a series inspired by ReFrame, a museum-wide initiative to reimagine the function, role, and future of the university art museum. These talks examine difficult histories, foreground untold stories, and experiment with new approaches to the collections of the Harvard Art Museums, reflecting the concerns of our world today.
