• 14th century pigments for use in manuscript illumination, on panel and in fresco are described in Italian treatisses, with plates by Giotto.

A companion volume to 14th Century Colour Palettes -Volume 2, this book covers painting on the wall and on
wood panel from Cennino Cennini, The Book of Art, of the late 1390s (extracts). The pigments
and methods are drawn from the practice of Giotto, as Cennino writes.
