Color Scheme: An Irreverent History of Art and Pop Culture in Color Palettes - Edith Young

Color Scheme explores an alternative way of seeing through gridded systems of colors, or palettes,' to take readers on a visual journey through art history and pop culture.

From the various shades of pink used by artists to describe the blush of Madame de Pompadour's cheeks to Helen Frankenthaler's orange color fields to Prince's concert costumes, Color Scheme is a collection of Young's palettes that reveal new ways of thinking about larger arcs in visual culture. Pinpointing revealing and humorous themes throughout artists' careers or periods of time, this book would be an excellent gift for yourself, your aesthetically-minded friend, or anyone who loves a good color scheme.'
