1777 ca1854
an English chemist. He was born in or about 1777 at Berkhampstead, Hertfordshire, of a family long settled in that town, and was educated at St. Peter's school there. Field then commenced the cultivation in his own garden, and from roots of his own growth produced beautiful specimens of colouring matter. A contrivance, both mechanical and chemical, was still wanted to reduce the liquor to its finest consistence. Field's reputation as an author rests on his Chromatography; or, a Treatise on Colours and Pigments, and of their Powers in Painting, London, 1835.
