An Atlas of Rare & Familiar Colour
€ 33,-

Most of the time when we think about color, it’s the red, the blue, the green, the yellow, the orange and the purple that we talk about. Black and white aside, these are the colors that go through the rainbows. Yet, nature is quite rich with all sorts of color varieties giving us more options than we tend to take. Some of these varieties are nicely assembled in this new Atlas of Rare and Familiar Colour of the Harvard Art Museum’s Forbes Pigment Collection where ten basic colors are put in their historical context to serve as the starting point for more variations of color pigments. Each of these are presented in tiny recipients with their name on, and a short description and their origin inscribed next to them.
