I just wanted to say that I was impressed by your packaging and shipping. I found you when I was searching for papers I just couldn't get locally and thought it was worth trying an order. I'd been resigned to the idea that small paper orders would end up rolled and in a tube, but I was pleasantly surprised to find my order shipped flat and well protected. Thank you. I will be ordering from you again.

Marc Chagall

Marc Chagall

(1887 - 1985)
Born: Vitebsk, Russia
Style: Expressionism
Famous Works:
  • I and the Village (1911)
  • White Crucifixion (1938)
  • The Magic Flute (1967)
Marc Chagall's world of fantasy images paved the way for many European Surrealists. Chagall was raised in Russia, and influenced by his love of Russian-Jewish folktales and the Jewish religion. In 1910 he moved to Paris, where he joined the circle of avant-garde artists Fernand Léger, Robert Delaunay, and Amedeo Modigliani. This exposure to Fauvist color led him down a decidedly different path from the Constructivists in Russia. Chagall's work was injected with a lyricism, and combined scenes from his childhood stories. He received his first one-man show in Germany in 1914, but soon after left for Russia, where he remained due to the start of World War I. Kazimir Malevich and Chagall taught together in Vitebsk, but a disagreement between the two artists prompted Chagall to move to Moscow, where he designed for the new Jewish Theatre. Chagall created large scale murals, sets, and costumes. This opportunity inspired Chagall, who enjoyed the large scale and narrative subjects. He painted The Green Violinist in 1923 after resettling in Paris. The subject is an extension of one of his paintings from the Jewish Theatre, a violinist from traditional Jewish music. Chagall continued to have influence in the design world, and in 1966 he painted the murals for the Metropolitan Opera in New York, creating another masterpiece in the tradition of the great storytellers.

As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It handles well and is very flexible.

Lanaquarelle cold press is a beautiful paper for watercolor and gouache. It does not hold up to drafting tape as a masking method, but can take masking fluids. The paint continues to slowly and evenly disperse across a wet surface, applied even after the wet sheen subsides, so be careful not to over-paint during wet on wet or dispersion will go too far. It is a great paper for very surprising subtle and delicate effects, as well as bold and saturated washes, which apply easily and evenly. I am glad I tried this paper and I would definitely use it again and again.
- Reed-Deemer Art Studio in New Mexico
Other than the few that kept breaking as I was sharpening them, I was impressed with the vibrant colors & how they went on so smoothly.
