Do you know Sennelier ? Let’s share together our passion for color
Sennelier is one of most famous French trade marks of art supplies.
In 1887, Gustave Sennelier, a devoted chemist, established himself as a purveyor of fine-artists’ paints at 3 Quai Voltaire facing the Louvre and steps away from l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts.
Having thoroughly researched the history and usage of pigments, he developed a distinctive process for manufacturing oil colours, formulating precise methods for mixing tones and for controlling their opacity and transparency. His work was so meticulous and his eye for colour so accurate that artists soon began to regard the Sennelier palette as the ultimate standard of quality.
