Colori: Emotions Of Colour In Art - Hardcover


  • The book investigates the use of colour in art through artistic movements and research that stand apart from canonical histories on colour and abstraction, with multiple accounts relating to memory, politics, spirituality, storytelling, psychology and synesthesia
  • By analyzing the different colour theories that gradually took shape in the turbulent socio-political context that characterized the 20th century, Emotions of Colour in Art reflects on a perspective that considers light, its vibrations and the world of emotions, while challenging the standardization of the use of color in the modern age (synthetic colors) and the digital era (RGB colors offered by various online palettes), a leveling that considerably reduces our ability to distinguish colors in the real world
