"Renaissance Mysteries"













The two volumes are an in-depth examination of a
lost painting tradition.
Volume I presents the artist as a painter-
craftsman with the preparation of natural colour
from rocks and crystals and their application in
appropriate binding mediums. Natural pigments
such as lapis lazuli, azurite or cinnabar are
compared with modern synthetic pigments.
Volume II presents the artist as a creative
intellectual and links the painter’s craft with the
composition of a painting. This begins with the
basic design, the rectangle.

A one-on-one workshop or a small group can be
arranged in the artist’s studio in upper Manhattan,
New York, (Riverside Drive / 158th Street,
Subway No. 1 @ 157th)
