In addition to the symposium lectures, this book includes a chapter on the English background of the early paints of British settlers, a recent survey of early American paint colors, and a glossary of historic pigments. Chapters reflect the various points of view of those who approach paint and its use from different backgrounds. The authors are architectural historians, paint investigators, and painting conservators. The authors provide a unified and virtually complete reference work on historic architectural paint in this country.” Quantity Available: 0. Shipped Weight: 3 lbs 5 oz.
