Henri Art Magazine - Color

Mark Stone of Henri Art Magazine has been posting a series of essays on color. He points out how the use, and perception, of color in art has dramatically changed over the past few centuries. He then very intimately links this, through specific artworks, to our own changing character as a people.

He frames these thoughts within a Modernism vs. Post-Modernism comparison, in ways which further clarify these movements.

Color: 16th Century
Color: Mannerism
Color: Chromophobia
Color: Emphasis
Color: Simulation
