Extract of the preface by M.Bernstein

Notes, jottings after talks with artists, the customary interchange of views and experience of the studios, recollections from journeyings and visits to galleries and to the country, went to the first mooting of them. To these things were added practical experience as a plastic and decorative artist. Their theme being, as it is, to some extent their material basis of all works of art and the way in which they are produced , they offer the connoisseur and the practising artist a welcome supplement to the many lectures and essays dealing with the finished artistic product…….
