"Color and the Art of the Tetrarchy: From Princeps to Dominus" 
The Tetrarchy was a radical form of government in the late Roman period--rule by four, imperial territories divided, appointments supposedly based on merit, and term limits!  The Tetrarchs transformed Roman imperial portraiture by suppressing individualized features for idealized images celebrating group cohesion. The talk explores how color played a significant role in Tetrarchic portraiture. 
Free and open to the public.
