As a pigment, white is often thought to represent an absence of colour. But, it is without doubt an important colour with an intriguing history. Michel Pastoureau, a celebrated authority on the history of colours, presents a fascinating visual, social & cultural history of the colour white. Captivating images from the ancient world to the 21st century, White examines the evolving place, perception & meaning of this simple yet complex hue in art, architecture, literature, religion, science, fashion & everyday life. White has an especially rich symbolic history. This beautiful & pristine colour has been associated with purity, integrity, innocence, wisdom, minimalism, peace, compassion & beauty. White is a colourful history of a surprisingly sacred & serene colour.
