The National Gallery in London shows the exhibition Making Colour until September 7. The project invites to discover the techniques and materials used to make pigments throughout art history. In a themed rooms by color, visitors learn about the origin of cobalt blue lapislázuli, vermilion, orange, purple… and golden and silver.
One of the interesting points of the exhibition is an interactive screen to demonstrate how we perceive and record the color. Definitely an interesting exhibition to visit if you are in London.
