This is the first book to investigate the place of color in Byzantine art. By engaging the issue on both a technical level--how colors were made, what colors were available--and a perceptual level--how these colors were seen and described--James offers a new approach to the study of color in art history. Including sixty-four color illustrations, most never before published, James's study offers a unique view of the details of Byzantine art.
