A really engaging reading through the symbolic aspects of color. It is not for beginners but it is an amazing theoretical book about colour in art history which, if you're passionate like me, you will find an essential piece of your library. It covers the history of colour from the Middle Ages to the 20th century; some chapters required me more than one reading due to a bit of complexity, but the overall impression was totally worthy.
