Painters and Painting Tools

A demonstration of some of the tools used by limners and illuminators, via illustrations of them at work and relevant examples of the tools in museum collections and other websites with related artifacts.

Notice the development of different types of easels, palettes, and paintbrushes.

(For illuminators and book-illustrators, see this linkspage.)
