James Fox: The World According to Colour
A HENI Art Club talk by Dr James Fox, the award-winning broadcaster, Cambridge art historian, author and curator, exploring the history and cultural significance of colour. His book on the topic, The World According to Colour: A Cultural History, was published in September 2021. By tracing the meanings of colours to humankind to show how they changed and multiplied, and the role that they have played in our culture and history, Fox’s work allows us to see many of the milestones in the history of art – from Bronze Age gold-work to Turner, Titian to Yves Klein – in a new way.
