Pigments Through the Ages by Web Exhibits
This link will take you to Web Exhibits who have created a series of articles chronicling the history of pigments. Titled Pigments Through the Ages, it tells the story of the colors of art with a timeline detailing their discovery.
One of the authors of the site has produced a new comprehensive website on the same subject of pigments and their use in paintings called Colourlex. From the site: "ColourLex is a private initiative project focused on the subject matter where Science and Art overlap. Scientific investigation of paintings and painting materials reveals the secrets beneath the surface of works of art from all historical periods."
