Unlock the secrets of colour - learn how and why it has been used in art over the centuriesThis vibrant and compelling book uses 240 artworks as case studies to tell the story of ten individual colours or colour groups.

It explores the history and meaning of each colour in art, highlighting fascinating tales of discovery and artistic passion, and offering easily accessible explanations of the science and theory behind specific colours.

From Isaac Newton's optics to impressionist theory, from the dynamics of Josef Albers to the contemporary metaphysics of Olafur Eliasson, this book shows how colour paints our world.
