A fantastic and different alternative to Naples Yellow, it certainly has the same colour tendencies and historical background. I suppose it stands out as having significantly more punch and vibrancy than a yellow ochre but not quite the deepness of Naples Yellow, really though the bottom line is this is a truly stunning colour and amazing tube of paint .

Yet again Rublev are unique in producing such a special paint. Rublev's description of this colour is as follows;

"Lead-Tin Yellow Dark is an opaque ocherous yellow, fine grained with medium tinting strength. Our lead-tin yellow is made according to historical recipes. Although lead-tin yellow frequently occurs in European painting before the eighteenth century, it is not mentioned in older literature on painting techniques. It has been identified in Rembrandt's work such as Belshazzar's Feast (1636/1638). It is called massicot in northern European manuscripts, but identified as giallolino or giallorino in Italian manuscripts, as noted by Merrifield."
