Project MUSE Mission Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. Early woodcut self-portraits, increasingly abstract lithographs, the famous Homage to the Square, and 10 prints that are the beginning of Albers's experiment in color are all featured here, as are the posters, album covers and greeting cards that Albers created toward the end of his career.
The pieces were culled by Brenda Danilowitz, chief curator of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, who's written a lucid introductory essay on the evolution of Albers's oeuvre. Toward a Psychology of Art: A Study of Composition in the Visual Arts: The author either tries to impress you with his knowledge of the english language or confuse you with the ideology behind his observations in artistic composition.
I found the book to be very confusing and at times boring enough to put it aside and read something else. The author does relate some good input when critiquing paintings but you need pay complete attention to the beginning of the book in order to understand his complicated formulas.
It is definetely not an easy read, and not for the artist. This book is for the art critic who tries to find scientific formulas for the study of composition.
Chevreul, is unquestionably one of the greatest books ever written on color; the first English translation is reprinted here with the original color restored and an introduction and explanatory notes by Faber Birren, the leading color authority of the present time. Chevreul's book dominated the schools of Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism, and exerted profound influence on later schools of painting including today's Op Art. Chevreul set forth principles that have become basic in color training throughout the Western world.
In his illuminating commentary Mr. Birren shows how many of Chevreul's ideas on color harmony, contrast effects, optical mixtures, and legibility have been validated by modern scientific research in visual perception.
Birren also provides a helpful glossary of Chevreul's terminology. Lavishly illustrated, the volume contains many color plates, including 15 plates from the original French edition, photographs of Gobelins tapestries, and full-page reproductions of outstanding Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist paintings.
Essential as a reference book for artist and art educators, this volume will also be a source of fresh inspiration for fashion designers, interior decorators, and all others concerned with color in any medium-and it makes good reading for all those interested in the history of men and ideas.
Color and Culture: Practice and Meaning from Antiquity to Abstraction by John Gage Reviewer from Mesa, Arizona, USA This book is an excellant source of palette development, pigment uses and development as well as color theories throughout history. My students have worn out my copy -- needs to be reprinted and made known in college art departments.
Good, solid informational writing and illustrations. A must-have book for artists and students. Color and Meaning: Art, Science, and Symbolism by John Gage Reviewer from Dallas, Texas John Gage, the most thorough and clear-thinking historian of color theory, has produced another superb book, rich in references and sound historical bases from which we may go forward ourselves.
There are a number of things any reader will delight in finally grasping. With me, it was that interesting distinction between pluralist and unified color modes page that I finally understand; and there are many other sound explanations that will delight the serious student of color. It is all the more baffling that Gage never reaches a discussion of such things as Land's color theory in relation to Polaroid, and even more important, the workings of color in the computer and its printer.
If there ever was a codification millions of colors in relation to primaries it is in the design of these systems used by all of us.
Yet Color and Meaning reads as if the computer has not yet been invented. I yearned to get to those chapters, but they were not there. And I regret it.
It's a good reference for design conventions similarity, anomoly, gradation, radiation with examples. Three-d section uses geometric constructions and doesn't use plastic examples.
Strong 2-d resource.
