Introduction -- On colour and colours -- Index.
"Whether it is scooped up off the palette, deployed as propaganda, or opening the doors of perception, colour is central to art. This chronological anthology reflects on the aesthetic, cultural, and philosophical meaning of colour to artists within the broader context of anthropology, film, philosophy and science. Those who loathe colour have had as much to say as those who love it. Establishing colour as a central theme in the story of modern and contemporary art, this is a handbook to the definitions and debates around its history, meaning, and use."--BOOK JACKET.
