A study of an important but anonymous part of the history of American art: the materials and techniques used by American painters. Based on research including artists’ recipe books, letters, journals, and painting manuals, it includes topics such as the quest for the ‘secrets’ of the Old Masters; the application of ‘toning’ layers; and more.
