True Color: A Type of Bliss

at Think Olio - Greenwich Village
828 Broadway, New York, New York 10003

Nothing in art rivals the power of color, the sharpest tool in the artist’s toolbox. It is potent even to the point of seeming dangerous. Josef Albers’ class at Yale began with a stern warning about inconstancy: “Color deceives continually.” Color vs. line divides art history. Delacroix, Rothko, Kandinsky, Matisse and others fearlessly pushed...
