Old Holland is one of the oldest fine art companies in the world established in 1664. The company is known for uncompromising adherence to traditional techniques and standards.
All colors are made by hand and pigments are ground in stone rather than metal rollers and then packaged in lead tubes rather than the more modern aluminum alloy tubes, which have a tendency to eventually oxidize and decay.
All 168 colors are made with only the best pigments and binders to produce a very concentrated and light-fast paint that results in higher color strength, hiding power, and intensity that is consistent through out the color line.
Only cold-pressed linseed oil from the first pressing is used for the binder. This optimizes drying of the paint film and also promotes permanence.
COLOR SWATCHES: Use for reference only. If true color is needed, please use the actual product for best results.
