Theoremetical System of Painting
Out of stock
“Theoremetical System of Painting, or Modern Plan, fully explained in Six Lessons; and Illustrated with Eight Engravings, by which a child of tender years can be taught the sublime art in one week. To which are added, The Theory and Practice of the Old School, in the introduction of Landscape and Figure Painting; with many valuable receipts on the subject.” This little book emerged from the HSEAD archives, and now has been reproduced in paperback, both as a potential learning tool and an historical reference. Teachers and students alike will appreciate the quaint language, occasional obsolete spellings, and the obscure names of some “colors,” as well as the interesting instructional style, and the two sets of stencil patterns for creating a rosebud and a pheasant. The reprint adheres as closely as possible to the original, except for the cover, which is illustrated with a current rendering of one of the two projects offered.
