Description

Examines the question: What is color? Takes viewers inside the galleries and conservation labs of the National Gallery of Art, to painting studios in New York and Washington, and to a high school physics classroom to explore color as both an aesthetic and physical phenomenon. Curators, artists, conservation scientists, and teachers share information about artistic approaches, the history and science of color theory, the physical properties of color, and the mechanics of color vision. Works of five artists are highlighted: Nardo di Cione, Titian, J.M. W. Turner, Claude Monet, and Henri Matisse.
