The Colour Red

Some people see red when they see this colour, while others blush at the sight of it. The colour red has a wide range of symbolic meanings. It can stand for danger and fire, but also for warmth and passion. As one of the three primary colours, red has always played a central role in painting. We find it in all its nuances in both figurative and abstract art.
