The 37 illustrated essays by conservators, curators and art historians are in five sections - Pastel and Chalk; Watercolour and Ink; 19th and 20th century materials; the materials of Asian art; and the assessment of fading - and cover topics including traditional Japanese prints, Whistler's drawings, the historical development of watercolour and Gauguin's 'printing' experiments.
