Red throughout History
September 27, 2019 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
By Michelle Guenther, Architectural & Design Representative, Benjamin Moore. For centuries, colour has been essential to the works by artists, designers and architects for its expressive qualities. In particular, the colour red has played a significant role, making it a timeless hue that is as relevant today and into the future as it was in prehistoric times or the Renaissance. By understanding red’s past, we can better understand the symbolism and vitality of this colour and why it is a true mainstay in every artist’s, designer’s and architect’s palette. This seminar surveys examples of the great importance of the color red throughout history, architecture, art history and design, while illustrating how red can be brought into the home today.
