Paint, the Story of Art
An exciting initiative by Monica Rotgans is the 7Colours Project. This project is directed at providing a fuller insight, for the reading and viewing public and professional audience, into the development of the use of pigments, dyes, and colour in the visual arts. It is a comprehensive, multi-media project that will cover the period from Prehistory through to the Present Day. A refreshing aspect of this project is that it is informed from both the Artist's practical knowledge and the Artist's unique point of view.
