Its hard to look at masterworks by Giotto, Titian, Seurat, and other great painters and not wonder how they were created. This fascinating book reveals exactly that. Artist and conservator Philippa Abrahams describes the different methods, tools, and materials, then uses step-by-step demonstrations to illustrate each painters craft. The frustrating, sometimes dangerous process of discovery, as artists from Michelangelo to Pollock have searched for new and better materials, gives readers a fresh appreciation of these great works of art.
