br Blue has a long and topsy turvy history in the Western world Once considered a hot color it is now icy cool The ancient Greeks scorned it as ugly and barbaric but most Americans and Europeans now pick it as their favorite color In this entertaining history the renowned medievalist Michel Pastoureau traces the changing meanings of blue from its rare appearances in prehistoric art to its international ubiquity today in blue jeans and Gauloises cigarette packs br Any history of color is above all a social history Pastoureau investigates how the ever changing role of blue in society has been reflected in manuscripts stained glass heraldry clothing paintings and popular culture Beginning with the almost total absence of blue from ancient Western art and language the story moves to medieval Europe As people began to associate blue with the Virgin Mary the color entered the Church despite the efforts of chromophobic prelates Blue was reborn as a royal color in the twelfth century and functioned as a formidable political and military force through the French Revolution As blue triumphed in the modern era new shades were created and blue became the color of romance Finally Pastoureau follows blue into contemporary times when military clothing gave way to the everyday uniform of blue jeans and blue became the universal and unifying color of the Earth as seen from space br With an exceptionally elegant design and strikingly illustrated with one hundred color plates Blue tells the fascinating history of our favorite color and the cultures that have hated it loved it and created great art with it br, The color red has represented many things from the life force and the divine to love lust and anger Up through the Middle Ages red held a place of privilege in the Western world For many cultures red was not just one color of many but rather the i only i color worthy enough to be used for social purposes In some languages the word for red was the same as the word for color The first color developed for painting and dying red became associated in antiquity with war wealth and power In the medieval period red held both religious significance as the color of the blood of Christ and the fires of Hell and secular meaning as a symbol of love glory and beauty Yet during the Protestant Reformation red began to decline in status Viewed as indecent and immoral and linked to luxury and the excesses of the Catholic Church red fell out of favor After the French Revolution red gained new respect as the color of progressive movements and radical left wing politics br br In this beautifully illustrated book Michel Pastoureau the acclaimed author of i Blue i i Black i and i Green i now masterfully navigates centuries of symbolism and complex meanings to present the fascinating and sometimes controversial history of the color red Pastoureau illuminates red s evolution through a diverse selection of captivating images including the cave paintings of Lascaux the works of Renaissance masters and the modern paintings and stained glass of Mark Rothko and Josef Albers, No description available, The medieval eye found any surface in which a background could not be distinguished from a foreground disturbing Thus striped clothing was relegated to those on the margins or outside the social order jugglers and prostitutes for example and in medieval paintings the devil himself is often depicted wearing stripes The West has long continued to dress its slaves and servants its crew members and convicts in stripes But in the last centuries stripes have also taken on new positive meanings connoting freedom youth playfulness and pleasure Witness the revolutionary stripes on the French and United States flags In a wide ranging discussion that touches on zebras gangsters awnings and pajamas augmented by illustrative plates the author shows us how stripes have become chic and even in the case of bankers pinstripes a symbol of taste and status
