The Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies at the Harvard Art Museums encompasses over 2500 of the world's rarest pigments. Visually excavating the museums' extraordinary collection, the monograph examines the contained pigments and artifacts; their providence, composition, symbology and application. Simultaneously, the publication also explores the larger related fields of chromatics, the historical narratives of art and chemistry, and the innovations our species' have sought for millennia, to better illustrate our aesthetic and expressive compulsions.
