Collection: Colours Uncovered

Colours Uncovered is a new exhibition tracing the history and science of colour, through selected objects and artworks from the Harewood House collection. Colours Uncovered examines what colour can tell us about the history of civilisation, scientific discovery and society from the 1500s to today. Curator Darren Pih connects the vibrant pigments in a Renaissance Vivarini painting, the blush pink in Sèvres porcelain, and the muted natural pigments in work by contemporary artist Max Lamb in a celebration of Harewood’s collection and gardens.
