A unique cultural history of the color blue in nineteenth- and twentieth-century arts and letters. The exhibition brings together literary and historical artifacts—such as the poet Langston Hughes’s blue enamel-decorated cigarette case and a hand-colored nineteenth-century family photograph, writer Edith Wharton’s 1915 Paris driver’s permit and an American driver’s guidebook from the same era—alongside great works in fields as varied as entomology, poetry, human psychology, and American popular music.
