"Blue has had a long and topsy-turvy history in the Western world. Once considered a hot color, it is now icy cool. The ancient Greeks scorned it as ugly and barbaric, but most Americans and Europeans now pick it as their favorite color. In this history, the renowned medievalist Michel Pastoureau traces the changing meanings of blue from its rare appearances in prehistoric art to its international ubiquity today in blue jeans and Gauloises cigarette packs." "Pastoureau investigates how the ever-changing role of blue in society has been reflected in manuscripts, stained glass, heraldry, clothing, paintings, and popular culture. Beginning with the almost total absence of blue from ancient Western art and language, the story moves to medieval Europe. As people began to associate blue with the Virgin Mary, the color became a powerful element in church decoration and symbolism, despite the resistance of chromophobic prelates. Blue gained new favor as a royal color in the twelfth century and became a formidable political and military force through the French Revolution. As blue triumphed in the modern era, new shades were created and blue became the color of romance, the Romantics, and the blues. Finally, Pastoureau follows blue into contemporary times, when military clothing gave way to the everyday uniform of blue jeans and blue became the universal and unifying color of the Earth as seen from space." "With an elegant design and illustrated with nearly one hundred color plates, Blue tells the history of our favorite color and the cultures that have hated it, loved it, and created great art with it."--Jacket.… (més)

I really enjoyed reading this book. It gives us the history of the color Blue and how it became an accepted color in clothing, flags etc.
One wouldn't think that colors had a history but Pastoureau proves that yes indeed the do. Starting with ancient Romans (who incidentally thought blue was a barbarian color), moving up through modern days we get to see how blue transformed into one of the most popular western colors today. AThe book is short and it makes for a nice quick, interesting read. ( )

This was an interesting book, a new way of looking at a color and it's social development.

He also had some interesting ways of looking at how historians and sociologists look at color and how our biases of today..well...color the way we look at the past. No pun intended.

I'm still not sure how or when blue went from being a unconsidered, un-respected color to being the most popular color in the Western world, but perhaps that is one of the things that can never be fully known considering social changes weren't really documented deliberately in the past but have to be inferred by what is considered important enough to put down in writing of some sort.

I feel he lost the thread of his book...or changed it towards the end and got a little more caught up in specific points in history or a specific artist. His section on Vermeer is an example. It felt more like he took the opportunity to write about his favorite artist and had to find a way to shoehorn him into the topic rather than the topic naturally allowing for the artists insertion.

Overall I enjoyed this book, though I do have a fascination for the development of color and the way we use and manufacture it so it would have to be rather bad for me to at least not be interested in it.

I do wish it were formatted in a standard book form vs. the "coffee table" size and shape, it made it awkward to read and I couldn't take it with me. ( )

I have just returned from a wonderful first lecture in a series of seven at the Thyssen Museum. This book has figured prominently in today's talk "The Color of Angels", dedicated mostly to art in the Middle Ages. The first thing I have done at home is order this book.

Color is a natural phenomenon, of course, but it is also a complex cultural construct that resists generalization and, indeed, analysis itself.
