Classic Oil Colours

by Old Holland

The Old Holland Oil Color Factory was established in 1644 and is still continuing its tradition; the oldest artist's paint factory in the world. These oil paints are still manufactured according to the 16th century methods and under the supervision of artists. The old Dutch Masters used Old Holland paint. All of these colors are manufactured using stone rollers which don't change the color of the paint. Only the purest virgin cold-pressed sunbleached linseed oil is ever used. In the classic Old Holland colors no fillers such as cheap chalk, barium sulphate, aluminum hydrate powders or wax are used. The resulting benefits to the artist using the classic colors are greater covering power, strength of color and the superb intensity of classic color. The paint is packed in soft lead tubes with a thin layer of pewter, as opposed to an aluminum tube which oxidizes within 15 years. Lead tubes last a lifetime. Since this paint consists of pure pigments and oil as opposed to industrialy manufactured paints, it cannot be filled mechanically in tubes because the paint is too sticky. The filling of the tubes is done by hand; tube by tube. If Old Holland classic colors seem too strong in color mixing, try mixing the colors with a white oil paint first.

I like this paint. You can save a few bucks on some of the others out there but ultimately Old Holland is just a finer product. I think it's well worth it and I like the way it smells!!! (-:

Love this stuff. Needed it fast and got it and a canvas order overnight in time for a commission with short time table. Mr. Art saved me lots of money on paint and canvas rather than having to drive to Atl. to shop. A++++

Excellent products, the quality is amazing.

Old Holland colors are second to none. I can use them with assurance that the best possible qualities are there for me and with MisterArt, the best price!
Rated by: Patrick N. in Jackson, MS
The best. Simple as that. For only a couple dollars more, you get the absolute best in color, texture, and flow onto the canvas. with nearly 400 years experience, Old Holland simply cant be outdone.

superb, everything I heard they would be, couldn't be happier
Rated by: Daniel T. in Penobscot, ME
I have been painting for over 40 years and find Old Holland Classic Oil Colours to be the finest oil paints I have ever used; they are superb. Their premium price is well justified. Painting with inexpensive paint is false economy; it can produce unwanted color changes and impermanent results. Old Hollands high pigment content results in colors that go much further than less expensive brands. To compound its colors, Old Holland uses the finest grade of oil and its colors are free of extenders and adulterants. To get good results, an artist must be well acquainted with the characteristics of his or her materials. The beginner who starts out working with inferior materials forfeits an important part of his or her training. Consequently, I recommend Old Holland Classic Oil Colours for beginners as well as accomplished painters and for amateurs as well as professional painters.

By far, these paints are superior! As an artist and art teacher, I recommend these paints above all else. For a few dollars more, you will get the most vibrant color and smooth consistancy. Never have been disappointed with any Old Holland product. The transparent colors, especially Alizarin Crimson, are incredible!
Rated by: Sue K. in Indianapolis, IN
These are by far the best oil paints available. I have tried a lot of the others and I find these to be superior in every way. The fact that these oils contain more pigment allows for use of less paint. They may cost more at first, but last longer and look better.
Rated by: William G. in Fort Worth, TX
Old Holland Paints are beyond comparison with any other paint. I first tried a three primary color set offer direct from holland, and was absolutely amazed at the richness of pigment, the range of color that could be created from just three colors, and the enormous coverage from even a tiny dab of paint. Truly a revelation!
