Marcia B. Hall’s new book explores the “Power of Color”

Author: Zachary Vickers

After five years of research, Marcia B. Hall’s latest exploration of color in European painting is here. Yale University Press has published The Power of Color: Five Centuries of European Painting, a sequel of sorts to her 1992 book, Color and Meaning, which explored color in the Renaissance. This time, Hall’s research carries the reader on a journey that reaches into the 20th century. “The Power of Color extends to World War I,” Hall said. I wanted to capture the larger picture of how techniques and making developed in the early modern period, which has never been studied.” The Power of Color covers a 500-year period of innovation and discovery in the world of art that spurred new visual effects and strategies.  Read More
