The Pigments of Poussin

"The Assumption of the Virgin" by Poussin located in the Louvre, Paris. ARQUA collage with the Poussin pigments and his signatures. "The Death of the Virgin" 1623 by Nicolas Poussin located at a church in Brussels. The pigments have been analyzed and are the same as were used in the two little paintings of Gasc including Poussin`s special red and the expensive ultramarine blue made with lapis lazuli.
