Editorial Reviews

Review

“Highly recommended.”—Choice 



"Written to be accessible to curators, art historians, and painters as well as conservators, it offers a procession of fascinating personalities woven into a cohesive narrative that intertwines with American history." —Fine Art Connoisseur



“[The authors] have researched the topic for three decades, consulting sources as obscure as shopkeepers’ bills and paint still encrusted on artists’ palettes.”—New York Times


“Conservators Lance Mayer and Gay Myers present a wealth of technical information amid amusing anecdotes and eccentric artistic profiles. Relying on primary sources, they uncover the creative processes and wide-ranging materials used by renowned American artists such as Benjamin West and Rembrandt Peale.”—Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide

About the Author

Lance Mayer and Gay Myers work at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London, Connecticut, and as independent conservators.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. King on April 30, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is solid and well-made, but perhaps I should have checked the dimensions of this book before buying it, as it was much smaller that I thought it would be. What I found most disappointing, however, is the very limited amount of painting images. If one is discussing a painter's technique, it would seem prudent to include some examples of his (her) work for review. One discussion about Thomas Cole didn't even have one of his paintings in the book, but instead a portrait by another painter of Thomas Cole was presented. Not very impressive.
