Antiquity

Encompassing works from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, the Liebieghaus antiquities collection provides striking insights into the development of the Mediterranean cultures over a period of three and a half millennia.

Head of the Collection

Prof Dr Vinzenz Brinkmann has been heading the Departments of Antiquities and Asia at the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung since 2007. His research focuses are the paints and colours of antiquity and the ancient myths. The results of his research into antique polychromy have been presented in many cities of the world in the travelling exhibition “Gods in Color”.
