Many of the valuable techniques and materials formerly used in painting have been lost or forgotten. Whith the convenience of the art supply store, the artist is no longer forced to acquaint himself whith many of the operations performed by the great craftsmen-painters of the past. The result is that the modern painter often does not understand the chemical and physical reasons for the steps he follows. This book bridges the gap between artist and craftsman, and gives the reader insights into the classical techniques of the great masters as well as the procedures followed today.
Unabridged, unaltered republication. 48 plates, 16 illustrations in text. Index. List of Plates. Preface by the author. 250 pp. 5 3/8 X 8. Paperbound.
Natural Pigments is a limited liability company based in Willits, California. We manufacture and distribute rare and hard-to-find materials for fine artists and decorators. We specialize in supplying artists' materials that were used in historical painting since pre-historic times up to and including the nineteenth century.
We constantly search for materials and products of the finest quality so that we can bring them direct to you from the source. To do so, we travel the world to find materials specifically for use by professional artists and decorators. We obtain minerals from mines in Afghanistan, Chile, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, to name a few places, processing these into natural pigments. We purchase resins, gums and plants from India, Kenya and Malaysia to make natural varnishes and painting mediums.
Our mission is to provide the largest variety of natural pigments, paints and other professional artists' supplies, enabling us to bring you a selection that makes shopping for rare and hard-to-find art materials easy. Our objective is to promote the education and use of these materials among artists by providing detailed information for their employment in encaustic, fresco, oil, watercolor and tempera painting.
