The Venus de Milo occupies a prominent place in the history of Greek sculpture and taste for the antique.
The style is characteristic of the end of the Hellenistic period which revives classical themes while innovating.
The creator was certainly nourished by the experiences of classical Greek art. But the master of the Aphrodite of the Louvre knew how to free himself from the heritage of the past and demonstrate creative originality.
For lovers of the original version in Paros marble, the Louvre workshops have produced a cast in marble patina resin, an exact replica of the original work on display at the Louvre Museum.
