20% off a great new book
Did you know that an alchemist born in Frankenstein’s castle in 1673 was behind the beautiful blue of the waves in Hokusai’s Great Waves off Kanagawa? Or that Rodin used an unusual method to accelerate the development of verdigris on his bronzes? In his fascinating new book, The Art of Colour, Kelly Grovier unearths the backstories of the colours we encounter in art. This is a work that will make you look at paintings in a whole new light.
