Zoom lecture by Dr Megan Aldrich at 6.00 pm (London). Crace was the decorating partner of A.W.N. Pugin, and something of a revolutionary in his use of colour in a period when the world embraced colour as never before. This new enthusiasm for colour was made possible by new pigments, new products and new technologies. This lecture draws on the recent research for Dr Aldrich’s chapter in A Cultural History of Colour in the Age of Industry, published by Bloomsbury Academic in September 2020.
