    Jean-François Persoz’s color-manual, Theoretical and Practical Treatise for Printing on Fabric, was embraced by French Impressionist artists as a revolutionary landmark in the history of color-theory and its practical artistic applications. Presented in the work is a dizzying tour-de-force of a master chemist’s intimate knowledge of the creation of color.
