The papers in this ATSR conference volume show that research into art technological sources from ‘the rise of modernism’ is obviously a specialised area of research, very different from the situation that is found, for example, in the case of medieval sources. On the one hand, there are far more sources, both visual and textual, but on the other, the sheer amount of material means that basic work such as critical editions of major textbooks, definition of technical terms, the trade in artists’ material etc. is yet to be done.
