內容簡介


我們活在一個充滿顏色的世界裡,對從事與顏色相關行業的人來說,鉛白、象牙白、銀白、粉白、米白,就是不同的顏色。你可知道畫家得花多少時間與精力,才能表現出”黑中白”與”白中黑”?每個時代都有它所流行的顏色,這樣的顏料是如何生產出來的?為什麼看到某些顏色,我們就會將它與特定的藝術家、設計師或品牌畫上等號?

本書將顏色分為10大家族:白、黃、橘、粉紅、紅、紫、藍、綠、棕與黑,每個家族的顏色又因為明暗、色度的不同,而細分為不同的色調。這本《顏色的秘密生活》告訴我們關於75種最迷人的色調與顏料的非凡故事。從金黃到薑黃,改變戰爭方式的棕,到免於瘟疫的白,畢卡索的"藍色"時期,拉斯科洞穴牆上的”碳黑”畫,從酸黃到凱利綠(濃厚的黃綠色),從犯了通姦罪的猩紅女到帝國紫,這些精采的故事就像穿梭於歷史中帶著光的線。在本書中,作者將她對顏色的熱情以及顏色的出處(不管是梵谷鉻黃色的向日葵或是龐克的螢光粉紅)轉變成一項對人類文明獨特的研究。橫跨了時尚、政治、藝術與戰爭,《顏色的秘密生活》就是我們文化的鮮活故事。

A mind-expanding tour of the world without leaving your paintbox. Every colour has a story, and here are some of the most alluring, alarming, and thought-provoking. Very hard painting the hallway magnolia after this inspiring primer.'
Simon Garfield

The Secret Lives of Colour tells the unusual stories of the 75 most fascinating shades, dyes and hues. From blonde to ginger, the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, Picasso's blue period to the charcoal on the cave walls at Lascaux, acid yellow to kelly green, and from scarlet women to imperial purple, these surprising stories run like a bright thread throughout history. In this book Kassia St Clair has turned her lifelong obsession with colours and where they come from (whether Van Gogh's chrome yellow sunflowers or punk's fluorescent pink) into a unique study of human civilisation. Across fashion and politics, art and war, The Secret Lives of Colour tell the vivid story of our culture.
