Sennelier Artist's Oil Colour Chart
Sennelier gathers only the finest natural and inorganic pigments from around the world for their Artist's Oil Colour. The pure pigments are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extrafine consistency. They are then combined at maximum concentration with archival safflower oil (non yellowing) to yield the highest possible tinting strength and lustrous satin finish.
The sensuous pigments have a unique dense but firm and buttery texture, a consistency originally developed for the expressive style of the impressionist painters who frequented the Sennelier store in the 19th century. Sennelier’s meticulous work and collaboration with Cezanne and other masters gave rise to a palette of colours that quickly became the standard of quality. Favoured by some of the greatest artists (Monet, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, Bonnard, Modigliani, Chagall, Ernst, Hockney), Sennelier oils hang in the world’s most prestigious museums.
