“This uniquely practical guide to the techniques of 50 of the world’s greatest painters concentrates on one work by each artist. The book shows the development of technique from the frescoes of Giotto to the acrylic paintings of David Hockney, revealing the extent to which changes of technique and the evolution of artist’s materials went hand in hand.
the book has been compiled with the aid of a team of technical consultants all of whom are picture conservators or art historians who specialize in painting technique!”
