"271 years before Pantone, an artist mixed and described every color imaginable in an 800-page book.

Spanning nearly 800 completely handwritten (and painted) pages, Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau was probably the most comprehensive guide to paint and color of its time. According to Medieval book historian Erik Kwakkel who translated part of the introduction, the color book was intended as an educational guide. The irony being there was only a single copy that was probably seen by very few eyes.

The entire book is viewable in high resolution here, and you can read a description of it here.”

Still from Andrei Tarkovsky’s Nostalghia, 1983

You study, you learn, but you guard the original naivete. It has to be within you, as desire for drink is within the drunkard or love is within the lover.
Henri Matisse

newguise:

There are three areas in which you should never be thrifty: boots, intoxicants, and legal representation.

Rather than give you new advice that may not serve you, I’d like to amend the advice I gave long ago. Rather than telling you to do what you love, I’d like to say this: Don’t do something you hate for a living. There is no glory in suffering. Because you can grow to hate something you love if it puts you in a bad position, this advice gives you permission to move on to greener pastures if what you love is making you cry at night. Whatever you love should love you back. And if it’s not working out, it’s ok to find something else to love.
Rachel Nabors, Don’t Do What You Love
