The World According to Colour
A talk by Dr James Fox.
“James Fox’s passionate and illuminating exploration of the extraordinary relationship we have with colour is itself extraordinary.” Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare with Amber Eyes
Dr James Fox, award-winning, BAFTA-nominated, broadcaster, Cambridge art historian, writer, public speaker and curator, gives a talk about the history and cultural significance of colour.
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, 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.
James fell in love with art at the age of six and hasn’t looked back since. His latest book, The World According to Colour: A Cultural History, was published in September 2021.
