March of the Pigments: A 45 000 Year-Old Parade through History
Mary Virginia Orna
Pigments speak of passion – passion in their creation and in their application. They have graced our world with joy, delight, symbolism, protection, identity and meaning. They pervade every aspect of human life from the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the buildings we build. They color our bodies inside and out. Their march through human history and the effect they have had on that history is the subject of this seminar. This journey begins 45 000 years ago in Paleolithic caves around the world. It ends on the threshold of a future that will transform our very definition of a pigment. This march could never have progressed, nor even begun, without an intimate partnership with chemistry.
