Best Art Book of 2014, The Huffington Post

“This colorful volume tells the stories of the major colors in the artist's palette throughout history, from ultramarine to madder red to modern colors, like chrome yellow. Perfect for the student of art or art history, or aspiring or accomplished artist.”—Seattle Times

This fascinating history of color in art is a real page turner.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Victoria Finlay’s The Brilliant History of Color in Art is a global, historical journey into the origins and science of color. Ever wondered how the first color photograph was created? Where the Lascaux cave painters got their dyes? Or why we call small dots of digital color ‘pixels’? Finlay’s lucid stories are accompanied by gorgeously reprinted art from many of the greatest artists of all time.”—Zocalo Public Square

“A cracking good read.”—Fine Art Connoisseur
