Cory's Yellow Madder Or Cory's Madder Is Classed Among The Browns


for the same reason that Italian Pink was ranked among the yellows. It

was stated in the eighth chapter that no true madder yellow, brilliant

and pure, exists as a pigment at the present day, and certainly this

preparation can lay no claim to the title. Except in name, it is an

orange-brown of the burnt Sienna hue, and might therefore with more

reason have been called Orange Madder. It is a good and permanent

colour, rich and transparent, at present used only in oil, we believe,

and chiefly as a glaze.
