Seeing red for Valentine’s Day

In Art and history by Roger Thomas

Here are a dozen of my favorite images of red.

Historically, red is the color of royalty, as it was always the rarest and most expensive pigment. It is the color of “Stop” signs and “Danger,”of passion, of love and of anger…..and of Valentine’s Day. I have created rooms that are red-on-red, fabrics and leathers and wall covers that are red. And I love it best at its hottest shade.

I love seeing red, don’t you?
