Summary

Knowledge about colour &#8211 its properties, methods of fabrication, meanings, and uses&#8211 has always been the purview of a wide range of individuals, from painters and architects to dyers, printers, pigment manufacturers, chemists. This volume discusses how different communities interacted with respect to knowledge and practices surrounding colour, thus contributing to a better understanding of an important current in cultural history.
