Genuine Naples Yellow Light 60ml Tube, No.605
Lead Antimoniate, in genuine versions, appears to have been used as a pigment since the 5th century B.C. and has been manufactured since the 1400’s. Being one of the most relied-upon colours and in constant demand. I am now one of a few artists colourman left making the genuine article, as opposed to the modern alternate. I continue to do so because its vivid, dense, almost primrose yellow cannot be mimicked, as portraitists and figure painters will attest. It is more powerful and yet more muted than its equivalents among the Cadmium range. Its handling characteristics are incomparable. Because it tends to react when parsed with steel rollers, to this day I still grind it with stone. Just incredible one of our best sellers.
