Volume 2 contains extensive studies of nine pigments including azurite and blue verditer, ultramarine blue, lead white, lead-tin yellow, smalt, verdigris and copper resinate, vermilion and cinnabar, malachite and green verditer, and calcium carbonate whites. These essays, which originally appeared in Studies in Conservation, have been substantially revised and brought up to date. With at least two more volumes planned, this ground-breaking series is of compelling interest to the practicing artist, art historian, conservation scientist and conservator, and connoisseur.
