Rate this:
Sloane (art, City U. of New York) surveys the history of theories about color--from its symbolic, linguistic, and cultural associations to scientific explanations based on the physics of light and form--and challenges traditional assumptions. She suggests that the way color has been understood since the nineteenth century is incomplete, and offers new ideas. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
