Product description

Review

“On Color is a deliciously readable, gloriously illumined work of meditation and exploration, written in high resolution. - Jay Parini, author of The Last Station and Empire of Self: A Life of Gore Vidal
 
 
“On Color changes how we see the world. - James Shapiro, author of 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare
 
 
“Here is a subtle and imaginative insight into the slippery phenomenon we call colour – and how variously we perceive and emblemise it: a wise and fascinating study. - Colin Thubron
 
 
"Like the best works of cultural criticism, On Color changes how we see the world. I mean that quite literally.  After reading this brilliant book, the mundane appears sharper, richer, and more meaningful." - James Shapiro, author of 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare
 
 
“This lively, erudite, and far-reaching introduction to the poetics of color combines anecdotal art history with cultural and literary studies to illustrate a fundamental truth: that color is relational as well as subjective. This entertaining and humane book effortlessly deepens our engagement with the visual world. - David Salle
