Pigment Hunter


Saturday, January 24, 2004

Twenty years ago Art Guerra was a painter whose murals were beginning to fade. He set out to find the perfect outdoor paints to fix them. And that quest led Guerra to an obsession with pigments. Guerra now collects pigments and owns an immense library of vintage paint catalogs that help him scour the country for what he calls forgotten and extinct pigments. Produced by Kerrie Hillman.
