This is a book about painters with a particular interest in the modern paints they used. Every great painter has been interested in their paints, but this is fascinating because it makes clear how the artists understood the properties of the materials newly available to them, and how they exploited their characteristics to achieve their aims. The chapter on Frank Stella, in particular, is spellbinding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why I am giving it just an ok reveiw. 20 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book was a little scruffy and soiled but its content is as good as expected. It also arrived in a plastic bag-type envelope which offered no protection to the book at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Paintings analysis for the working artist or budding painter 10 Nov 2009
By M. Theberge - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you paint, you may have noticed that when you look to books on paintings for inspiration it is difficult to determine from the photography and text just what the artist did to create the piece. London's Tate Gallery conservators Jo Crook and Tom Learner have done just that for you. The work of a number of contemporary painters (Bridget Riley, Morris Louis, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, etc.) has been analyzed scientifically and each artists' process researched through interviews with the artist and/or their assistants to understand how the paintings were constructed.
The result is fascinating insight into the building of paintings. Detail photographs taken in raking light imitate the experience of actually standing in front of the painting, looking closely at the texture, color, brushstrokes and materials.
A must-have for the contemporary painter, art instructor or art historian.
