Ordering Colors in 18th and Early 19th Century Europe

June 5, 2020 - June 19, 2020
2:00 PM - 5:45 PM
Online

Event Description: 

The question of how to order colors reaches far back, but in the 18th century, particularly in its second half, we see a steeply increasing number of studies that indicate a broad and urgent interest in classifying color. Quite diverse contributions from the sciences, arts, crafts, and trade created a diverse field of color order research in the 18th century. The workshop will explore, examine, and discuss those efforts and hereby contribute to the history of color in 18th and early 19th century Europe.
