From that title, one can imagine how broad this topic was. DW insisted that she could manage this topic (her original thesis included pigments in ALL forms of art). It became apparent that she needed extra time to complete this project to the level of the classes expectations. She presented her final paper and the rough draft of her timeline on the presentation day, but she asked to have time to complete the timeline more thoroughly before presenting it to the rest of the world. I’ve complied. Her writing is excellent and I encourage you to read her paper on the topic.
