9781451003451: The Secret of the Old Masters (Classic Reprint)

As soon as I could understand and appreciate the splendors of the Grand Masters of painting, I had begun to form a determination to discover the technical principles, methods, and material that enabled the Masters to produce their work. Years ago, I never had any real satisfaction when I did paint a fairly good study head, because I felt instinctively that it was in no sense related to the technic of the Masters. Therefore, the search for the Masters technic became for me an all-absorbing life work to the exclusion of all else. This life work was more or less an injury and loss to me in many ways.
