Description - Light Art by Amnon Barzel

Light art is a current in contemporary art that uses artificial light as its primary expressive tool. This volume examines how investigation into the chromatic values of light has been carried out throughout the history of art from the very beginning up until the most recent developments, recalling milestones such as Caravaggio and George de La Tour for internal light and the impressionist movement for external light, thus underlining how the invention of artificial light enriched the relationship between art and light in a new and fascinating chapter that was opened in the fifties by the experiments of artists such as Lucio Fontana, Dan Flavin and Mario Merz.
