Color – a master class by the French art historian and PhD, Camille Viéville, shows how colors – through different periods, cultures and artistic movements – have been used and interpreted in art. From the first decorative pigments in Paleolithic caves, to Sonia Delaunay's contrasts of primary and secondary colors, to Dan Flavin's neon light installations.

Through 60 masterpieces from prehistory to the present, the history and symbolic meanings of colors are explored. Both the materials and techniques that artists use to convey their effects, from Yves Klein's monochromes to Mark Rothko's fields of vivid color, or from Claude Monet's impression of a fleeting moment in time to David Hockney's ultramarine blue reflections and shadows, inspired by Johannes Vermeer .

With the chromatically remarkable creations of artists including Veronese, Van Gogh, Hokusai, Kandinsky, O'Keeffe, Kahlo or Warhol, this volume provides an enlightening overview of the history of color in art.
