Product description

Review

"Brilliant...in every sense. Ball's book is the volume that has been missing from my library" (Guardian)

"Brings the mysterious subject of colour wonderfully alive. Quite literally an eye-opener" (Economist)

"A succinct and elegantly structured new survey of Western painting. Ball pitches his learning just right between academic history and a highly readable series of anecdotes and biographical sketches" (Daily Mail)

"Full of fascinating vignettes. Philip Ball writes engagingly on complicated topics" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Scattered with attractive particles, sparkles with redolent names... A solid, well-researched compendium of information" (TLS)

Book Description

A brilliant exploration of the science of art and of colour
