This volume of the collection gathers texts that debate the two main elements that define painting: design or color. The edition presents texts regarding this artistic debate of "intellect against passion" that started during the Italian renaissance between the two rival painting schools of Venice and Florence and lasted until the 20th century when the art of Matisse gave total autonomy to color. The collection of Pintura is an anthology of translated fundamental texts regarding western art written by 130 authors from the 4th century to the 20th century.
