Colour is the most sensuous element in art, but what role has it played throughout the ages in different cultures and media, from paintings to stained glass? Two of our most challenging art historians discuss the use of colour in art, with reference to their most recent books. Julian Bell's Mirror of the World: A New History of Art juxtaposes Western creativity with work from different societies; Frances Spalding's John Piper, Myfanwy Piper: Lives in Art is a double biography of two influential British artists. Julian Bell is also a painter. Frances Spalding is a distinguished biographer and critic. (DeadGoodBooks)
