Synopsis: Originally printed in 1898, 'The Painter in Oil' is one of the most sought after books on the technique of painting in the manner of the old masters.
"Books of instruction in the practice of painting have rarely been successful. Chiefly because they have been too narrow in their point of view, and have dealt more with recipes than with principles. It is not possible to give any one manner of painting that shall be right for all men and all subjects. To say "do thus and so" will not teach any one to paunt. But there are certain principles which underlie all painting, and all schools of painting; and to state clearly the most important of these will surely be helpful, and may accomplish something.
"It is the purpose of this book to deal practically with the problems which are the study of the painter, and to make clear, as far as may be, the principles which are involved in them. I believe that this is the only way in which written instruction on painting can be of any use."
About the Author: Daniel Burleigh Parkhurst, was a student of William Bouguereau, Aimee Morot, Tony-Fleury, and William Sartain.
