Adam Sella ’22 explores the color blue in three works of art: Utagawa Hiroshige’s print Yamato Province: Yoshino, a Thousand Cherry Trees at One Glance, Pablo Picasso’s Mother and Child from his Blue Period, and Josef Albers’s painting Homage to the Square: Against Deep Blue. Taking the Museums' Forbes Pigment Collection as a springboard, the tour considers blue’s foundation in pigments and optics as well as its power to stir up associations and emotions.
