Color / by Raji Radhakrishnan

Thinking of color...and how artists use it - from old masters like Vermeer to modern art blue chips like Warhol and how in retrospect they actually defined their era, what was modern then, what was the norm or acceptable to them at that time with the  use of color and exactly how and where they used it. I think even the shades of color were so much more bolder in the 20th Century and very telling on how we perceived ourselves and society at that moment. So, how are we defining ourselves right now?
