    Content Notes: 
    Translated from the Italian.
    "Every color has many aspects, many variations and many meanings. Red, for instance, can mean passion, or suffering, or anger. How are these aspects represented in works of art from cave paintings to Titian and Bosch, to Matisse and Warhol? Painters use colors to convey a message as much as they do for surface appeal. In design and fashion, color is omnipresent as well, but incredibly varied in its significance. Focusing on the most important colors in art -- red, blue, yellow, black, white, green, and gold and including discussion of their chemical propertieis, the science of optics, symbolism, and more, 'Color in Art' enhances our understanding of color through some 200 beautifully reproduced artworks."--BOOK JACKET.
    Includes bibliographical references (p. 312-313) and index.
