As Jerry explains in the video, this method comes to us directly from Paris, during the time of the Impressionists, from teacher to student, until it was brought to the US and handed down through the studio sytem of teaching that disappeared in the 1960s. Jerry was fortunate to study in the studio of William Schultz who represented the very end of that system of teaching. This method, revealed now for the first time in video format to the public, is unavailable anywhere, with the one except of a DVD made by William Schultz before his death. It is an invaluable source of knowledge for all painters, regardless of style.
