I am writing my dissertation on the Color Yellow in Modern Art (19th
and 20th century). Tom Seligman (Cantor Arts Center) suggested I get
in touch with you and ask for information about the history of
yellow pigments, its use and conservation.

    Did Cadmium Yellow have a special influence on Modern Art?
    What role does sulphur play?
    When were Naples yellows invented?
