The color red signifies love, luck, energy, and passion in cultures across the globe. From China (where brides wear red on their wedding days) to the United States (where red roses are brought home on Valentine’s Day), the color red can represent the greatest moments and wonders of life. In art history, red has long held significance: Crimson-colored pigment made from ochre was one of the first colors used in prehistoric cave drawings. From graphic texts by Barbara Kruger to abstract etchings by Anish Kapoor, discover vibrant red works that are sure to make a statement, whether hung on your wall or given to the one you love.
