Description

Excerpt from Every Man His Own Painter! Or Paints, How to Select and Use Them: A Plain Treatise on Homestead, Villa and Cottage Painting, Containing Information Valuable to the Householder and Practical Painter; By the Author of "House Decoration," Etc Although in Nature's world all is harmony, and the eye dwells with pleasure upon the handiwork of God, fresh from His creative and unerring hand, this regard for beauty seems to cease when human design is brought to bear upon the embellishment of our homes or structures. When we remember that the lesson of harmoniously blended coloring is taught us at every step by an artist Divine in power and taste, we may well feel wonderment that the imitativeness of man has not made him an apter pupil when seeking to beautify the work of his own hands. In nothing, does this want of harmony obtrude upon and offend the eye oftener than in house painters' ornamentation. This proceeds either from absence of taste on the part of the owner of the property, under whose direc tion it is done, or lack of knowledge in the mechanic to whose unrestricted judgment the work is often left. To correct the evil pointed out, this pamphlet has been written, in the hope that it may act as a guide to those who may be called upon to decide either for themselves or others, on matters of decoration.
