This study shows an apparent distinctive pattern of color symbolism in Stendhal's works, while serving to unify the characters and events in Stendhal's fiction. The analysis of his non-fiction writings reveals his sensitivity to colors; notably, his autobiography serves as a touchstone to the elaboration of his color symbolism. It offers an examination of his fiction works that include "Armance", "Le Rouge et le Noir", "Lucien Leuwen", "La Chartreuse de Parme", and "Lamiel", all show various representations of Stendhal's distinctive color palette.
