The Baroque Science of Color

Color and dyes offered a central showcase for Baroque science. Naturalists of the period delighted in reaching across disciplinary bounds, and color research beautifully united the study of matter, optics, art, and antiquity. Color research also aided the theatricality of period science, when spectacular demonstrations and bedazzling gifts served as central currency between scholars and patrons.
