This course aims to provide you with an appreciation of the role of colour in the history of art.
It is suitable for both those who are new to the history of art, and for those who may have previously attended art history courses.
The course will begin with a comparison of a range of pigment types and a brief look at colour theory and terminology. This will be followed by a consideration of the way artists have used colour to communicate ideas and emotions, from the Renaissance to the present day.
The final session will focus on modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on the use of modern synthetic pigments and paints. Artists whose work will be studied include:
Hilma af Klint
Kehinde Wiley and many more.
