The Delacroix Palette


Eugene Delacroix was almost the godfather of the Impressionists due to his experimentation with colour and his handling of paint and really pushed the boundaries of what could be achieved with oil colour.

"A picture is nothing but a bridge between the soul of the artist and that of the spectator" - Eugene Delacroix

This is an extensively researched collection of 21 tubes (40ml) of the finest quality oil paint, closely based on the palette he was using towards the end of life.

It also comes with 250ml of a specially designed medium 'Flochetage', which is slow drying and enables close blending, made from fused Venice turpentine, stand oil and dammar varnish.

Pip Seymour who along with Rebecca Wallace were responsible for researching and creating this set said "It is like a Phd in colour mixing!".

Some of these colours are really one offs, the pigments being very rare and out of common use. This is a rare opportunity to go back in time!
