Seeing Through Paintings by Andrea Kirsh

Book Description

This prize-winning book offers the only comprehensive discussion available on materials, techniques, and condition issues in Western easel paintings from medieval times to the present. "An essential handbook for the pro, and also a beautifully illustrated primer for the layperson. Kirsh and Levenson teach the most valuable lessons about painting of all: how meanings, material, and techniques are bound up together."-John Walsh, former director, J. Paul Getty Museum "Every element of Kirsh and Levenson's book is smart, concise, and informative...[It is] the essential book on its subject."-Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle "A long overdue book with direct relevance for modern students of the history of art."-Libby Sheldon, Burlington Magazine
