Docent Lecture: Intrigue and Enchantment: The Magic of Color and Light, Kay Payne

John Martin, "The Assuaging of the Waters," 1840

John Martin, The Assuaging of the Waters, 1840. Oil on canvas. FAMSF, museum purchase, Whitney Warren Jr. Bequest Fund in memory of Mrs. Adolph B. Spreckels, 1989.73  

This lecture is an invitation to discover our kaleidoscopic world—a continuously changing pattern of shapes and colors, brilliant and resplendent as well as soft and muted. Light makes color visible during the bright morning or the soft glow of the late afternoon, creating intriguing shadows that are a prelude to the darkness and silence of the night.
