Eight obsolete art pigments

A very interesting article on the Hyperallergic site, listing eight art pigments that were once popular but have become obsolete - for reasons of availability, price, or being poisonous (image by myself). The pigments go by lovely names: Maya Blue, Tyrian Purple, White Lead, Lapis Lazuli, Dragon’s Blood, Mummy Brown, Indian Yellow, and Scheele’s Green. Recommended!
