Explores the color blue in three works of art: Utagawa Hiroshige’s print Yamato Province: Yoshino, a Thousand Cherry Trees at One Glance, Pablo Picasso’s Mother and Child from his Blue Period, and Josef Albers’s painting Homage to the Square: Against Deep Blue. Taking our Forbes Pigment Collection as a springboard, the tour considers blue’s foundation in pigments and optics as well as its power to stir up associations and emotions.

The Ho Family Student Guide Program at the Harvard Art Museums trains students to develop original, research-based tours of the collections. These tours, designed and led by Harvard undergraduates from a range of academic disciplines, focus on objects chosen by each Student Guide and offer a unique, thematic view into the collections.
This program is supported by the Ho Family Student Guide Fund.
