A unique hue, the greenish nature of this blue really doesn't appear with any other pigment.
Rich, deep and a strong tinter, it easily manipulates other colours with it's coolish edge. Perfect for landscape painting and excellent for subtle 'greyish' blues.
The pigment Cobalt Stannate was introduced in 1870 under the name “Cerulean”, i.e. sky-blue, in imitation of a Roman pigment of that name.
It is a perfect 'cool' blue against a 'warmer' ultramarine blue.
This is a truly exceptional version and very good value.
