The Colour Black

This talk explores the colour black in art.

Black may be the darkest of colours, but in painting it can provide an accent of velvety depth, of sophistication and of elegance. It can enrich the shadows but also sharpen the outlines, a colour for incisive design as well as the symbolically rich signifier of mourning and an ever-recurring fashion statement. Works with a key-note of black will include images by Velasquez, Sargent, Tissot, Degas and Lowry.
