Summary
The French Impressionist painters discovered new meaning for painting light--they used a "solar palette", the pigments matched to the colours the eyes see. They are the colours of a ray of light. This little book reproduces palettes by several of the plein-air painters, describes the pigments they used, and includes short excerpts by the scientists whose work was the foundation of the painting--on complementary colours, optical mixing, and the pigment-colour correspondences. It closes with colour swatches of the pigments, provided by the London artists' colourmen, L. Cornelissen & Son
