Product description


Author: Rosamond Harley
ISBN: 1873132913
Publisher: Archetype, 2001
Size: 230 x 300 mm (9 x 11.8 in.); Paperback

Between the late sixteenth century and early nineteenth centuries the artist's world underwent great and significant change. By the end of this period the transition from medieval to modern colors was well under way. R. D. Harley's book applies itself to a detailed and comprehensive examination of the primary documentary sources of this crucial period, providing an invaluable complement to the work of analytical scientists concerned with the identification of pigments.

In the opening three chapters, attention is paid to the various documentary sources examined, from the learned treatise to the tradesman's guide, and in particular to the problem of their reliability. The information derived from these documents forms the basis of the nine subsequent chapters in which individual colours, grouped according to hue, are investigated. In conclusion, the author addresses the development of colour manufacture in this period of unprecedented industrial and social change in England. Great care is taken at all times to deal with the interpretation of colour names used at different times, and with dates of discovery and commercial availability of new pigments.

The Archetype edition of this classic work is a reprint of the second edition with an additional article on new watercolours in the nineteenth century. Illustrated in black and white and colour, Artists' Pigments is a commendably thorough, detailed and comprehensive reference book of unique interest and usefulness to conservators, artists and art historians alike.
