AUTHOR

Ball, Philip

SUMMARY

"Ball...makes a valid case that those of us who are ignorant of the evolution, science and theory of color know a good deal less about art than we think we do....For anyone with painful memories of high school chemistry..., the first 70 pages of BRIGHT EARTH, as well as parts of later chapters..., are an uphill slog. Yet I have to admit that every bit of what is written there feels essential, both for the information it imparts and for its role in setting the stage for a widened perspective....The questions Ball answers in the course of this well-written, opinionated and sometimes witty survey of art from the Greeks to the Abstract Expressionists are not necessarily ones most art lovers ever think to ask. They are no less important for that."Ball, Philip is the author of 'Bright Earth Art and the Invention of Color', published 2003 under ISBN 9780226036281 and ISBN 0226036286.
