17th Century Colour Palettes

180302
Patricia Railing

Description

Ten 17th century writers described the pigments in use in their countries – England, Sweden, Flanders, France, Spain and Italy. The theme of their treatises was studio practice and the pigments were discussed as they were set on the palette.

Surprisingly, the method was the same – from light to dark, white to black. The 17th century palette was an international palette comprising just over 100 pigments.

This book will be of interest to art historians, collectors, students, conservators and museum-goers.
