Nice Firm Clean copy ! Light general wear. 134 pages. Were the paints used by the old masters better than ours today? And were their methods superior? Is turpentine a good painting medium? Why do some paintings darken, discolor, or crack with age, while others do not? What varnish should I use to restore the brilliancy of a painting which has grown dull? Which is better, a sable or a bristle brush? For far too lengthy a period - we might even say for scores of years - many painters were so immersed in the purely aesthetic aspects of their art that they neglected those equally important technical phases which must always be observed if results are to be enduring. A gradual awakening has taken place only as one horrible example after another of fading, darkening, discoloration, cracking, or like type of failure has come to the fore.
