Lead white (basic lead carbonate) was the only white pigment apparently present in original paint and deserves no comment. In one patch, zinc white identified in paint partially obscuring part of the sky was deduced not to be original (see Note 2, p.21).
On the evidence of a single early work the pigments found to have been used cannot be said to form a system to which Monet adhered throughout his long painting career. What is noticeable is that the bulk of the pigments in use by 1869 were the products of Monet's own century.
