The Artists' Pigment series is an encyclopedic reference. Practicing artists can learn a pigment's color, hiding power, lightfastness, toxicity, compatibility. Art historians can discover how an artist worked, what pigments were used, whether they were pure or mixed, opaque or transparent, layered or not. Conservators will be able to devise techniques for the care and conservation of works of art, to determine what is original, to repair damages, to compensate for missing portions of a painted surface. And conservation scientists can study identification methods used, including optical microscopy, microchemical tests, x-ray diffraction, infrared and reflectance spectrophotometry, and electron microscopy.


Volume 4 presents pigments based on carbon, iron oxide pigments, asphalt, cobalt blue, and arylide (Hansa) yellow pigments.
