production & design

Chemist Gustave Sennelier opened his art supply shop in 1887 in Paris, near the renowned École des Beaux-Arts, and while he started out selling paint made by other manufacturers, he soon became known for his own range of oil paints, which he mixed himself from pigments he gathered locally and in his travels. Many artists have relied on Sennelier's products to create their works, including Cézanne, Gaugin, Bonnard, Soutine, Van Gogh, and Picasso, for whom Sennelier specially created pigment that could be used on any surface without need for prior preparation. Henri Sennelier, Gustave's son, created the first oil pastel. The Sennelier shop, established in 1887
