Conte A Paris
In 1794, Nicolas Jacques Conté developed the modern graphite lead from a mixture of clay and graphite, thus making it finally possible to create different hardness grades for pencils. The pencil factory he set up in 1795, enabled France to produce its own calligraphy and drawing materials.
A few years later, he developed “pencils without sleeves” (bare leads) replacing those made from “Italian stone”. He worked on making the colours “fixed and unchangeable” to meet the requirements of the painters of the day. Artists’ pencils and pastels were born.
Over the decades, the quality and depth of its ranges have enabled Conté à Paris to establish itself as a true reference for artists worldwide. Used by top masters, amateur artists, and art students alike, Conté à Paris offers the widest variety of techniques and effects possible for drawing, sketching, and pastel work.
