The name Lascaux is evocative of a pioneering spirit, whether you go back 26,000 years, to the primeval force inherent in the cave paintings of Lascaux in the French Dordogne, or 40 years, to Alois K. Diethelms pioneering work with acrylic paints, for which he fittingly chose the brand name Lascaux.
Tried and tested
From the very outset Lascaux successfully incorporated the needs of artists and users into the development of its acrylic paints. And so, over the years, a palette of products has emerged which satisfies even the most exacting artistic and technical requirements. Since its founding in 1963 Lascaux has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of water-based artists’ colours and products used for restoration.
Across the generations
Barbara Diethelm, the founder’s daughter and current company owner, has herself studied painting and upholds the tradition of optimising the company’s products through a process of creative exchange with artists. Thus the pioneering spirit which shaped Lascaux from the beginning lives on and thrives in the product range itself.
