Germany's finest oil colors – 4 ranges for all oil artists!
LUKAS is a company rich with history, and has always been highly regarded as one of the finest artists' companies in the world. The recipe for their line of 1862 Oils is a guarded family secret that has been handed down through generations and perfected over the years. In the years since their inception, LUKAS have expanded their oil line to also include two excellent studio oil colors and new, eco-friendly water-mixable oils. Tradition and innovation meet in all exceptional LUKAS paints!
Even Vincent van Gogh, in a rare letter to his brother Theo in 1885, explained that he could have done better if he had LUKAS paints:
"I have ordered colors from Schoenfeld [LUKAS] in Düsseldorf, as there were some colors which I couldn´t get here…the picture with the potato eaters is not good in some details…I should have had a better result with the mineral blue that I have now [from LUKAS], instead of the old one."
- Vincent van Gogh
