B4021. Brilliant History of Color in Art / Finlay
B4021. The Brilliant History of Color in Art by Victoria Finlay. 2014. 128pp. 9"x10.15". Hardcover

This is no dry discussion of pigments, but rather an engaging and entertaining exploration around the colors artist use and how they came to be. The author tells of Cleopatra and purple, Napoleon and the graphite pencil, cobalt blue and forged Vermeers, and much more as she brings us into her quest to uncover the origins and science of color. All is related in the warm conversational style that helped make Finlay’s earlier book on color so popular. But unlike that earlier book, this rich narrative is illustrated in full-color throughout - with 166 major works of art, most from the collections of the Getty Museum.

B4060. A Bowl of Olives: On Food and Memory by Sara Midda. 2014. 128pp. 5.5"x7.5". Hardcover

Sara Midda is a watercolorist whose delicate and beautiful paintings shine like jewels, evoking the sweet purple of a blackberry or the silvery greens and gnarled burnt umber of an olive grove. She is a collagist, weaving together photographs, line drawings, her personal swatches—all the hues of a spice cabinet, or the sensations of a picnic, the colors of the breeze, sunshine, laughter, the cooling grass. And a she is poet, in love with words that sing, like podding and wicker, nettle and snug. Sara Midda is the author of In & Out of the Garden and South of France.
