Black is Beautiful. Greek Black Gloss Pottery

OPEN AGAIN! You can always find all information about the hygiene measures to be observed as well as about the possibilities of an incidence-dependent necessary pre-registration at →

Greek ceramics usually stand for figure-rich painting with images from myth and everyday life in antiquity. The special exhibition "Black is Beautiful. Glossy Greek Ceramics" draws visitors' attention to the simple elegance of purely black-painted Greek clay vessels. Only a few coloured accents distract from the elegant contours and shiny surfaces. This restriction opens up new insights into Greek ceramics and our own aesthetic perception of form.
