History comes alive in this book on colour's creation.

About the Author

Chromatopia is the creation of David Coles, founder and master paintmaker at Langridge Artist Colours - one of the world's most respected makers of artists' oil paints. David has been involved in the world of colour his whole life, both as a paintmaker and lecturer. By bringing art and science together, this book is the culmination of a life's work in the field. Over the last twenty-five years, David has channelled this enthusiasm for colour into guest lectures for many of the world's leading art colleges. In the process, he has helped a generation of artists discover, select, and ultimately master the materials best suited to their artistic intentions.

Reviews

In addition to providing a fascinating lesson in art history, Chromatopia is a superb introduction to the physical properties, cultural meanings, and emotional capacities of colour * Australian Book Review *
This book is as compelling for its strange facts as it is for the storytelling behind the origins of colour pigments. I treasure the depth and detail in David Coles's concise new book Chromatopia: An Illustrated History of Colour. * The Australian *
