In 1887, Gustave Sennelier, a devoted chemist, established himself as a purveyor of fine-artists’ paints at 3 Quai Voltaire in Paris, France facing the Louvre and steps away from L’ecole des Beaux-Arts.
The Sennelier shop sold pigments and paints to painters such as; Van Gough, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Picasso. Their paints and art materials are some of the highest quality produced in the world. They are especially know for the superior, vibrant color produced from their products.
The Sennelier Products are made with respect to traditions of the past 130 years. The passion of chemistry and colors still guide the descendants of Gustave Sennelier. The traditional workmanship needs very few machines, and the recipes are made with tradition and innovation.
