9780520222250: Color and Culture: Practice and Meaning from Antiquity to Abstraction

Color is fundamental to life and art yet so diverse that it has seldom been studied in a comprehensive way. This ground-breaking analysis of color in Western culture from the ancient Greeks to the late twentieth century is a John Gage triumph. With originality and erudition, he describes the first theories of color articulated by philosophers from Democritus to Aristotle and the subsequent attempts by the Romans and their Renaissance disciples to organize color systematically or endow it with symbolic power. The place of color in religion, Newton's analysis of the spectrum, Goethe's color theory, and the theories and practices that have attempted to unite color and music are among the intriguing topics this award-winning book illuminates.

With a large classified bibliography, discursive footnotes, and an exhaustive index, Color and Culture is an invaluable resource for artists, historians of art and culture, psychologists, linguists, and anyone fascinated by this most inescapable and evocative element of our perceptions.

About the Author:

John Gage is Reader in the History of Western Art at Cambridge University. An authority on color and on Turner, he is also the author of Color and Meaning: Art, Science, and Symbolism (California, 1999).

From Booklist:

Color is such an integral part of our visual, emotional, and aesthetic experiences that we hardly know how to study it within a cultural context. Gage, a British art historian and an expert on color and the painter J. M. W. Turner, has written a seminal, in-depth history of the perception and use of color in Western civilization and art. Gage covers everything from theories about color's source, divinity, and meaning to the palettes of various artists and the use of color to express sound. Proceeding chronologically from the art of antiquity to twentieth-century abstract painting, Gage explains how artists in different eras perceived color and developed techniques to harness it in their work for the attainment of myriad effects. In fluid, if reference-rich and often-technical, prose, Gage analyzes the use of color in Greek sculpture, early Christian mosaics, stained-glass windows, heraldry, and the work of Titian and Leonardo da Vinci, to name just a few of this large, well-illustrated volume's dozens of challenging topics. He also tackles the theories of Newton and Goethe and discusses such trends as the Romantics' fascination with rainbows. A truly far-reaching, inclusive, and trailblazing achievement. Donna Seaman
