Unique works in which images are formed primarily by the direct application of pigments suspended in oil, water, egg yolk, molten wax, or other liquid, arranged in masses of color, onto a generally two-dimensional surface.
works on paper
Use collectively to bring together works of art in which paper is the support, only when terms such as "drawings" or "prints" are not appropriate.
Refers to the succession of 20th-century avant-garde art and architectural movements formed in a reaction to social modernity. Modernism was eclipsed by the Post-Modernism movement, which began in the 1970s.
A natural phosphorus-containing protein found in milk, composed of amino acids Casein curds form naturally as milk sours, but it is also precipitated by adding dilute hydrochloric acid to hot skim milk. The curds are collected, washed and dried to form a white to yellowish powder. The dried casein is insoluble in water and alcohol but is soluble in carbonates and other alkaline solutions. For use, casein is soaked overnight in a solution with a weak alkali (ammonium carbonate, borax, or lime) to form a clear, viscous solution. Casein has been used as a glue and binder since earliest recorded periods. In the late 19th century, casein was made into a plastic by treatment with formaldehyde, used for small items such as buttons, beads, buckles, combs, cutlery handles, and knitting needles. They were often pigmented to simulate ivory, horn, or tortoiseshell.
Paint formed of an emulsion of fatty and watery constituents. The standard emulsion is usually created with egg yolk and water, with variants of man-made emulsions created with whole egg, linseed oil, casein glue, gum, or wax.
India ink
Inks made of carbon black pigment ground in water with water-dispersed resin used as a liquid drawing medium. Distinguished from "black carbon ink," which is made from powdered carbon pigment, usually lampblack, in a dilute aqueous solution of gum or glue.
