Overview

The endeavor of the present work is to fix and develop, for the benefit of the Amateur and the Student, some of the acknowledged general principles of Coloring as a means of Art, without reference to the purposes to which such Art shall be applied,—without reference to poetical expression or character, or to the imitation of the details of Nature, which are requisite for the production of great works. The capability to execute in the higher walks of Art does not depend, as is erroneously supposed, upon mechanical skill attained by constant practice and devotion to one class of subjects; but upon intellectual qualifications and mental refinement. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this useful book.
