"Primavesi's thorough analysis of Winckelmann's own development with regard to ancient polychromy based on one key sculpture he had studied and commented on, is an interesting and significant study that contributes to our knowledge of the history of archaeological research. ... The catalogue is striking because of a focus on an interesting question, a significant sculpture examined through generations, and an excellent combination of a historic study and empirical examinations. The volume fascinates through a great number of images of historic documents, colour remains and comparanda all of which are of high quality and of great value to this field of research." -- Clarissa Blume, Georg-August-Universitat Gottingen, Bryn Mawr Classical Review (2013.03.49) English summary: The Artemis statue found in Pompeii in 1760, now in the National Museum in Naples (inv. no. 6008), was the starting point for Johann Joachim Winckelmann's theory of the coloration of ancient Greek marble sculpture, as has been ascertained by recent research. This catalog to an exhibition presents the Artemis together with modern color reconstructions of ancient sculpture, made possible by scientific research during the last decade. The catalog contains contributions by Oliver Primavesi, Vinzenz Brinkmann, Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann, and Heinrich Piening. German text. German description: An der 1760 in Pompeji ausgegrabenen Artemis, heute im Archaologischen Nationalmuseum Neapel (Inv.-Nr. 6008), hat Winckelmann seine Theorie von der Farbigkeit der griechischen Marmorplastik entwickelt, wie die jungere Forschung nachweisen konnte. Sie wird in der Ausstellung gemeinsam mit modernen Farbrekonstruktionen antiker Plastik vorgestellt, die dank der naturwissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen in den letzten Jahren moglich wurden. Der Katalog enthalt Beitrage von Oliver Primavesi, Vinzenz Brinkmann, Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann und Heinrich Piening.
