A practical manual for painters, art students and art educators, on the paramount issue of mastering colour. Color for Painters evolved from the author's 28 years of teaching colour in painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, America's first school of fine arts and an internationally recognised leading institution in arts education. The book provides direct, practical demonstrations that specifically show how to construct a painting with colour. Rather than teaching colour as a process of personal exploration founded on a handful of modernist principles, Gury's approach is based on the idea that colour can be learned in a direct manner, a basis of learning seminal to the curriculum of PAFA, which has informed many of Americas greatest artists, including such masters as Thomas Eakins and Mary Cassatt.
