Overview

Burchett (art, U. of Central Arkansas) draws on a lifelong interest in research on color and color harmony in creating this reference text for visual arts scholars. Coverage includes a short history of color harmony from ancient Greece to modern times followed by analyses of 12 key books on color, including the work of Goethe, Chevreul, Helmholtz, Munsell, Katz, Kandinsky, Pope, Wright, Judd, Arnheim, Itten, and Albers. Also included is an extensive four-part bibliography containing a retrospective bibliography on color harmony and color in art listing 318 books published before 1975; a general bibliography of some 1,450 titles on the topic from antiquity forward, most from the 20th century; a compilation of bibliographies of color; and a cross reference of titles in the general bibliography arranged in 37 color subject categories.
