Chroma : A Book of Colour - June '93 Paperback / softback
by Derek Jarman
In Chroma, his most poetic and lyrical book, Derek Jarman explores the uses of colour in art, from medieval paintings through the modernists, and in doing so draws on the great colour theorists from Pliny to Leonardo.
Interwoven with these musings are Jarman's evocative memories from his illustrious career and early life, along with reflections of his deteriorating health.
Written a year before Jarman's death, and as his eyesight was failing, this is an intensely personal work; a paean to colour from an artist seeking to memorialise its centrality to all aspects of his life.
