An Illuminating Guide to Colour in Art

What is colour? How have artists obtained various pigments over the centuries, and what are they made from? How did some colours come to have symbolic meanings?

Colour is an essential part of painting and The Usborne Art Book about Colour is an ideal introduction to the topic for young readers. Using examples from cave paintings and the Egyptians to the present day, it explains how we see colour, as well as illustrating how artists have exploited colour and light to influence our response to their work.

The Usborne Art Book about Colour is published in association with the National Gallery, London, and beautifully illustrated with masterpieces from the collection and elsewhere. This vibrant book is the perfect family companion to Making Colour, this summer’s ‘National Gallery Inspires’ exhibition.
