The Artist's Assistant: Oil Painting Instruction Manuals and Handbooks in Britain 1800-1900
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, although colourmen sold oil paint ready-prepared in bladders, artists were still accustomed to purchasing pigments, oils and other components for their paint separately, combining them according to published information, experiment, personal preference and hearsay. By the close of the century, however, artists' colourmen were providing tube paints for export worldwide. The science of artists' paint production had undergone a transformation. In her meticulously researched study Dr. Carlyle has examined artists' manuals, catalogues and trade journals produced in Britain, and later in the United States, during this period of transition in the artists' materials and techniques. She has compared all the extant editions of widely reprinted books and sought out publications which, although obscure now, were highly influential in their time. Recipes for varnishes, vehicles, paint mediums and grounds have been compared and tabulated. Methods of painting have been described, and the 'artistical' properties of pigments, their working qualities, drying times and cautionary notes on their use, have all been compiled in an extensive appendix. Fascinating, accessible and carefully structured, 'The Artist's Assistant' is the first comprehensive and critical analysis of information on nineteenth-century artist's materials. It is an invaluable resource, not only for conservators and historians of art technology but also for artists, researchers and teachers who wish to work with authentic materials.

As more and more artists today look to the past, there has been a tremendous resurgence of interest in painting realistically - in creating convincing illusions of three-dimensional depth on two dimensional surfaces. This comprehensive sourcebook explores the most advanced levels of oil painting, with full information on the latest scientific discoveries. Author and distinguished artist Virgil Elliott examines the many elements that let artists take the next step in their work: mental attitude, aesthetic considerations, the importance of drawing, principles of visual reality, materials, techniques, portraiture, photographic images versus visual reality, and colour.
