Sculpture is commonly associated with the three dimensions of volume, while color is claimed as the exclusive means of expression for painters. However, polychromy was widely used in sculpture from the Middle Ages to the Baroque and beginning in 1814, there was a renewed interest in antique polychromy. Its effect in sculpture became visible several decades later. This book sheds light on this neglected aspect and leads to a better understanding of the art of the period in general.

How the discovery of classical polychromy inspired sculptors in 19th-century and early 20th-century France

How the discovery of classical polychromy inspired sculptors in 19th-century and early 20th-century France. At the start of the 19th century, the only colours accepted in sculpture were the pure white of marble or the monochrome of metals like bronze, with their classical associations of purity. Yet after the discovery by archaeologists that classical architecture and sculpture had, in fact, been painted polychrome, French sculptures saw an opportunity to explore an unfamiliar genre.

Oviri (Tahitian for savage or wild) is an 1894 ceramic sculpture by the French artist Paul Gauguin. The Colour of sculpture 1840–1910, Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, 1996. Gauguin Tahiti, Paris, 2003. Gauguin Tahiti, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 2004. In Tahitian mythology, Oviri was the goddess of mourning. She is shown with long pale hair, and wild eyes, smothering a wolf with her feet, while clutching a cub in her arms. Art historians have presented multiple lly that Gauguin intended it as an epithet to reinforce his self-image as a "civilised savage".
