Author(s): David Batchelor
Writings on color from modernism to the present, with contributions writers from Baudelaire to Baudrillard, surveying art from Paul Gauguin to Rachel Whiteread.
"In this remarkably imaginative collection of texts and fragments, David Batchelor has mined modern culture to extract deep seams of colour-thought. Like any great collection of things, it draws together the widest range of sources--from Melville to Matisse to Wittgenstein to Johnny Cash--to completely transform the way we think about how colour works in art and beyond." --Briony Fer, Professor of History of Art, University College London
