In this seminal study, John Gage considers every conceivable aspect of color in a groundbreaking analysis of the subject. He describes the first three theories of color, articulated by philosophers from Democritus to Aristotle, as well as attempts to organize it or endow it with symbolic power. He unfolds its religious significance, as an incarnation of the Divine Light in the mosaics and stained glass of Byzantine and medieval Christianity, and its use in heraldry, as part of a language of coded signs. He shows how the rainbow gave up its secrets and how Renaissance artists approached color with the help of the alchemists. He explores the analysis of the spectrum undertaken by Newton and continued by artists such as Seurat, and the use of the artists palette as an evolving scale of tones. He traces the influence of Goethes color theory and developments as diverse as Matisses exploration of complementary shades and the manufacture of paints; and considers the theories and practices that attempted to unite color and music, or make color into a language of its own.
