INVENTING COLOR IN ART

Friday University with Kay Rowberg

This course examines the source of color in art objects with Purdue Calumet Chemist, Kathryn Rowberg. Emphasis will be placed on the interactions of pigments, dyes and light with various media. Several examples of art pieces will be discussed and interesting chemical and physical principles will be demonstrated. For example, we will examine why the power of Titian was his color and hunt for phantom hands in the Raft of Medusa by Gericault.
