Constance Flavell Pratt (Compiler), Janet Monafo (Compiler). Introduction; Dear Pastel Enthusiasts, Welcome to the Renaissance of Pastels.

Constance Flavell Pratt (Compiler), Janet Monafo (Compiler). Before I delve into the little-known history of our medium, let me describe what pastels are and what they are not! Pastels have been misnamed chalks - limestone treated with colored dye - and crayons - those waxy colored sticks our children play with: Real pastels, however, are pure pigment; obtained from the stones in the earth and ground into powered form.

This book is fantastic! On each side you have one or two awesome paintings in best printed quality. And this book has 144 sides. Do not expect any text except for the artist names, the title of the picture, the size and the sort of paper, there are no further descriptions. Some paintings look like fotos, so realistic they are, some are in a more expressive style, overall I could not believe that pastel painting delivers so many possibilities. The jury did a very good job with this choice. I am very impressed!

Bought this for my husband. He's an artist and one of his mentors has a painting in this book. Unfortunately, it must have been exposed to humidity. A lot of the pages were stuck together. Fortunately, our friend's page was fine.

Great book
Bradeya
Great for any pastel influenced artist.
Chuynopana
It is inspirational to see all this work in pastel
The brad spectrum of examples is wonderful
The book is a good compendium of styles and is hardcover for more heavy usage such as at a school or perhaps and art club.
I would recommend to a friend

This was purchased for my wife who is a pastelist, she had a newer publication by the same writer and wanted to visit an earlier publication . The book met her expectations and accordingly gave it four (4) stars,
