520    This expansive study of color illuminates the substance, 
       context, and meaning of five centuries of European 
       painting. Between the mid-15th and the mid-19th centuries,
       the materials of painting remained remarkably unchanged, 
       but innovations in their use flourished. Technical 
       discoveries facilitated new visual effects, political 
       conditions prompted innovations, and economic changes 
       shaped artists' strategies, especially as trade became 
       global. Marcia Hall explores how Michelangelo radically 
       broke with his contemporaries' harmonizing use of color in
       favor of a highly saturated approach; how the robust art 
       market and demand for affordable pictures in 17th-century 
       Netherlands helped popularize subtly colored landscape 
       paintings; how politics and color became entangled during 
       the French Revolution; and how modern artists liberated 
       color from representation as their own role transformed 
       from manipulators of pigments to visionaries celebrated 
       for their individual expression. Using insights from 
       recent conservation studies, Hall captivates readers with 
       fascinating details and developments in magnificent 
       examples--from Botticelli and Titian to Van Gogh and 
       Kandinsky--to weave an engaging analysis. Her insistence 
       on the importance of examining technique and material to 
       understand artistic meaning gives readers the tools to 
       look at these paintings with fresh eyes.
