Historical architectural colour is an elusive topic, since paint fades and discolours, and most early schemes have been obliterated by succeeding phases of redecoration. This study combines information from documentary sources with data obtained from the technical investigation of significant interiors by important architects of the period, and presents for the first time a coherent outline of true historical practice.
