Color into Line: Pastels from the Renaissance to the Present offers a fresh understanding of the art of pastel. With the appearance of a painting, the immediacy of a drawing, and the timeless matte finish of an ancient fresco, the pastel is one of the most versatile media used throughout history. Told through a selection of works that span five centuries, and drawn primarily from the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, this handsome volume accompanies the exhibition at the Legion of Honor museum and features masterworks by Rosalba Carriera, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, John Altoon, Wayne Thiebaud, and many others. Author Furio Rinaldi is a curator in the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Hardcover, 176 pages.
