New article on the history of color in art (from artsy.net)

A brief history of color in art (click link to read article)

I actually have a nice sized library of books on color - here are few of the titles that are still available (via amazon.com). There are many others, in particular, ones that discuss only a certain color (blue for example), but these are a great place to get started on learning about color.

Color: A Natural History of the Palette 

The Brilliant History of Color in Art

Interaction of Color (Albers)

Pantone: the Twentieth Century in Color

Colors: The Story of Dyes and Pigments
