Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

What is color? From Aristotle and Plato through Newton and Goethe to Wittgenstein, philosophers and scientists have worked to understand and categorize color, while artists have made their own efforts to demonstrate its enigmatic logics. This is a book about color, and a book about color and art. Across eight essays and more than 150 works of art drawn from the collections of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and Merzbacher Collection, this book aims to define color as a phenomenon that manifests across many different lines of thought and areas of life: the history of art, the history of ideas, psychology, psychiatry and cognitive science, architecture, marketing, literature and music. The essayists for the volume are John Gage, Erich H. Buxbaum, Jacob Wamberg, Klaus Stromer, Morten Kringelbach with Kristine R0mer Thomsen, Gertrud Olsson, Lars Handesten, Steen Chr. Steensen, Helle Crenzien and Stephanie Rachum.
