Welcome to our new website

In the two and a half years since our last redesign, a substantial amount has happened for the Pigmentum Project: we published the Pigment Compendium, won a L’Oréal Art and Science of Colour Prize, and joined the University of Oxford.

The new site reflects our progess, listing new members of the team, academic papers authored by members of the Project, and detailing our extensive collection of historical pigments, compiled for our work on the Compendium and now available to interested researchers.

Also newly available are extracts from the two books that comprise the Pigment Compendium, A Dictionary of Historical Pigments and Optical Microscopy of Historical Pigments. Both extracts can be found on Pigment Compendium page.
