Congratulations to our Department Chair, Professor Aaron Fine, for his new book!
This book discusses color theory from its ancient origins to the present, and provides a fascinating contribution to art theory using one of art’s essential building blocks. Professor Fine discusses aspects of color that are long-recognized as important but by analyzing “colonialist and gendered attitudes, materialist and romanticist perspectives, spiritualist approaches to color, color in the age of reproduction, and modernist and post-modernist color strategies” (from the Amazon description of the text) he provides a new framework that allows the application of color theory to practical applications. Published by Bloomsbury Press and gorgeously illustrated, you can order direct from the publisher or from your local bookstore or through Amazon. Congratulations, Aaron!
