Rembrandt Oil Colors

Proudly crafted in Holland on triple roll mills, Rembrandt is the professional choice, most notably for direct painting and Plein Air painting. Rembrandt oil colour is a unique combination of superior quality and tradition.

Rembrandt is one of the oldest brands of Royal Talens. Its history dates back to 1899, the year that the founder Marten Talens started up his family business in Apeldoorn. Completely in accordance with the tradition of the Dutch Masters, the emphasis lay particularly on colour, handling properties, lightfastness and the most exclusive pigments. To this day- this philosophy is what distinguishes the Royal Talens Colourhouse from other colour makers.

Rembrandt Oil Colours are pure and intense with very high pigment concentration. Pigments in the professional range can spend up to 10 hours on the mills! Rembrandt Oil Colour’s Extra-Fine grind results in higher tinting strength, buttery handling property and a very wide range of transparent colours. The full range of 120 colours is 100+ years lightfast in museum conditions- the highest degree of lightfastness. Each unique pigment has a time-tested recipe which gives each colour across the range close to universal handling, sheen and dry time.

In over 100 years the Rembrandt brand has built up an unprecedented wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise, which is employed in its efforts to continue innovating. The professional artist is Rembrandt’s most important source of inspiration for this.

“I love my Rembrandt Extra Fine Artist Oil Colours. They flow so beautifully and mix quickly. This allows me to keep up with the spark of creativity that set me to work, without having to use medium. I’ve been using a limited palette of Rembrandt Oils for over 10 years, and my favorites are: Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Orange, Permanent Madder Deep, Ultramarine Blue Deep, Viridian Green, and Burnt Umber. More recently I’m loving King’s Blue.” – John P. Lasater
