    Aims and Scope

    This volume addresses the scientific, physiological, aesthetic, and symbolic function and meaning of colors in the art and literature of the Romantic era by examining the discourse on subjective and objective perception that took place around 1800. It reveals how colors in the “real world” and in the visual arts contrasted with the typically metaphoric colors in language and literature.
