At the end of the 19th century Gustave Sennelier recognised the need to produce colours that only contained the highest quality pigments. He went to great lengths to verify the origins and quality of each of the pigments he used. This tradition and respect for materials is still upheld by Sennelier today. With over 125 years of experience Sennelier are one of the world’s most respected fine art brands. Their colour ranges include the famous soft pastel l’ecu range, oil pastels that were developed with the help of Picasso himself, artists’ oils and the recently improved L’Aquaralle watercolour line.
