The articles in this volume circle around an area of study that has become known informally as `technical art histotry'. It is a wide-ranging, inclusive vocation of the making of art and the means by which we throw light on that process. Although concentrating on painting techniques, materials and studio practice it goes far beyond the material into how concepts are translated into substance - how invenzione becomes disegno and colore.

In this volume we travel in a great sweep from the general to the particular - from (global sources of pigment supply to the specifics of extracting dyestuffs in seventeenth century Holland, from the medieval concepts of colour to vivid glimpses of nineteenth Century London studios. This collection of articles demonstrates the great importance of painting techniques and materials for art historical research.
