"...Among colors there are certain friendships, for some joined to others impart handsomeness and grace to them..." (Alberti, 1401-72)
Throughout art history, one can study the importance of this statement. Color reinforces movement in Van Gogh's fields. Eugene Delacroix used complementary colors to create a sense of urgency and a fiery spirit. Impressionists capture atmospheric moods through color. Closely looking at an impressionist work, you can see a multitude of color interacting to capture atmosphere, light and shadow. Color rocks!
