Purple Brown

is a refuse manufacture from Indian red washings. A dull, heavy, coarse

colour, it belongs to the class of common pigments which are

unexceptionable for decorative painting, but scarcely suited to the

higher branches of art. As this work professes simply to treat of

artistic pigments, that have been, are, or might be, more than a passing

reference to those colours exclusively adopted by house-painters, &c.,

would be out of place.
