Vasari still carefully handcraft their colours in small amounts and even fill every tube by hand. Their traditional methods of paintmaking ensure the purity of colour and lush consistency, enabling them to impart the secret of the Old Masters to the modern day painter. Working with only the best oil and the finest authentic pigments, they refuse to dull, stiffen, or weaken colours with fillers such as chalk or wax.
Our tribute to the self-taught 19th century painter Henri Rousseau.
This exuberant, lush, pale olive green summons the richness of Rousseau’s magical tableaux and his skillful use of intense color to hold one’s attention, especially the enormous jungle scenes painted at the end of his career. Celebrated and collected by the giants of 20th century modern art, this former Paris Customs Service worker retired early to live his passion and spend his time painting.
We wish to honor both Rousseau’s dedication to and ingenuity in creating his art with this subtle, mixed warm green that offers endless possibilities on the palette as both a yellow and as a green.
