Excerpt from The Art of Painting in Oil and in Fresco: Being a History of the Various Processes and Materials Employed

The precepts which the author has collected, extended, and developed, with the judicious advice he has offered, are not so much intended to teach this art, as to lay before the artist, the proper mate rials for painting, and how to make pictures durable. A principal object has been to collect and carefully describe the numerous processes used in oil paint ing, from its earliest appearance to our own time.

The result of this investigation shows that the older masters of the Venetian and Flemish schools, did not paint as modems do, with pure Oils, but that they tempered their colours with varnishes; to which must be attributed the state of preservation in which we find their pictures.

M. Merimee describes the modes Of preparing the different varnishes that are proper to mix with the colours, and also those which are to be used over the picture when finished. He also communi cates the most exact ideas upon the colouring sub stances, their preparation, solidity or durableness.
