ColArt comprises a group of famous art materials companies of complementary character and with origins dating back to the early 18th Century. This proud history forms the cornerstone of a unique brand heritage.
Rich in tradition, our leading brands have been the natural partners for many of the world’s greatest artists. Over the centuries, ColArt brands such as Winsor & Newton and Lefranc & Bourgeois have developed unique skills and resources which are employed in the production of fine colour. Many of the products first introduced by these renowned brands have revolutionised the way in which painters make art.
Over the centuries, ColArt brands have worked with artists to better answer their needs. For example, the collapsible tube first launched by Winsor & Newton made on-site painting possible and fuelled the Impressionist Movement in Europe in the nature. Then and today our products are made with the careful craftsmanship, ensuring that our unique products continue to achieve the quality demanded by a new generation of artists.
